Do you ever feel as if you're talking to yourself even though you could be addressing a whole group of people. When the words just keep coming, and you smil anyway, even though you know that no one is listening, how do you deal with it? I just keep talking because someone out there in that crowd is always listening. There is at least always one whether they have anything good to say or think of, there he/she is. Sitting there, watching you closely and drowning out all the others talking. Drowning out all the others fidgeting in unimaginable boredom, because what you have to say is at least worth considering. It doesn't have to be agreed with, just listened to...and isn't that what we all want, to be heard by at least someone? That is the first step, I think..to be heard, because if we're not heard then how can anyone draw any conclusions on our sincerety, sanity, or enthusiasm? Thats why we rant and rave, scream and cry, or even laugh and smile. To be heard, to be seen, to be noticed. Pitiful sometimes the lengths that people will go to to receive any kind of recognition, but the truth is that even the most angelic of us do it. Most constantly I would say. When I leave, and come back there may be no names attached to this message, but I have full belief that someone will have read it. Someone is always out there reading and never commenting. Standing there or sitting there..listening..the most quiet soul and mouth in the room not questioning while the speaker is speaking, but oh so full of questions; and feeling like they're going to erupt into chatter, tears, and question asking, but not doing so. Sitting there...quietly..soaking it all in and learning lessons in a dignified manner. Is it sometimes best to listen and say nothing, or is it always best to rant and rave as any fool would just to draw in that fleeting attention that we all seek most every day of our lives? Sometimes, the quiet ones don't draw as much attention as they should. The quiet are usually learning more because there is less noise to filter whatever knowledge is being gained through...Sometimes the quiet speak the loudest yet are never heard............................................................................................................................................................................... ....BOOM!




Can I be your willful breeze,
Come to touch,
Your heart to ease?

I never speak up in crowds...I sit back and listen..because, you see, I'm invisible!

Temptress, I like what you wrote.  
I read a lot but do not comment as much, sometime i start to comment but then i feel that it doesn't sound right so i just change my mind
or i am in a hurry I should not even be on line  and just wish i could let the person know i did read what they said and it did touch me in a special way. Or i am too shy to say what i think or i sound too corny.
It amazes me how so many people can make  me feel hopeful by reading their sad or happy thoughts.

I am definiatly the quiet one.  I am always that one person in the room that sits or stands against a wall.  I listen, watch and learn.  By doing this people think I don't want to talk.  At first I didn't.  I had too many emotional scars to let anyone even that close to me.  But now if someone comes up to talk to me I will talk but most of all I listen.  Whether anyone realizes it or not people talk to other people to be listened to and not always to have a conversation.  I have been a sounding board to many people, I have even helped some when they ask but mostly I just listen.  I have seen friendships, relationships, and even enemies come and go.  Sometimes I feel I have too much in my head already but I keep taking information in.  I am waiting for the day when I get the message, "Memory space is getting dangerously low. Please delete all nonessential memories before proceeding with your life.".

Well I talk so much that I usually just entertain myself. But if I'm talking to somebody and they're not listening I smack then once or twice and that usually does the trick.
I refuse to not be heard. Everything anybody says is worth hearing. I make sure that whatever I have to say is heard.
I'm here with you though if you need somebody to talk to. I may be young, but I still got ears.



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

Thanks for posting your thoughts everyone. This meant a lot of different things, and I wanted to see how everyone would apply it to their moods when the replied.
