Just listen to me for a second.
You aren't even listening?
Don't shut me out, shut me down.
Take a moment.
I might not speak aloud. 
I might not speak at the right moments.
I might not share, I might not spread, I might not declare.
But right now I need to talk to you.
I need to shed, to whisper, to reveal.
But you aren't even listening.
You are blocking me. Paving me. Closing me. 
You've sealed me. Locked me. Rejected me.
Just listen for a second.
One second.
