so simple yet so deep. im in love with how people can write such short sentences which are made up of things we call words and just how these words sound so delicate and graceful and how they flow with one and another. maybe im just reading too deep into something. but i have seen so many poems and different writings in the past few days and i am fascinated with the way people can write such beautiful things that are so relevant in someones life. thought id just put that out there
"Sometimes I forget to listen. I forget to let a friend be. To tell their whole story and paint their full heart into the air. I’m too eager to respond with a fix, a solution, a plan. I interrupt the art. I look for a pause to jump in and offer all sorts of articulate banter, when this isn’t what they want. They just want to speak until they’re out of breath, and then meet eyes and feel like they’re okay and understood and not alone. It’s a beautiful thing, and I want to let it happen. I want to let them finish painting in their own words. And then maybe I will understand."
