Simple segments conveyed by mouth;
simple in their sound.
Simple not in emotion or heart
or what they may have found.

Eternal chatter, filling time;
substance not aloud
Killing tension, killing hours
like a snow white cloud.

Words of meaning, great in depth
are sent to those who hurt.
Soothing sounds of a companions love
filtering out the dirt.

Simply stated or rambled in vien
or pounded by the chalk...
every word is relevent
when people sit and talk.

Great poem, I loved it and like Lee anne said, it says everything.

Great jog  

 Waves...amazing hey? Wind blowing over smoothe ocean water creates shear. The longer the wind blows, and the futher the fetch, the more energy gets transferred from the wind to the water. What started off as a breeze 1 000km away, ends up as a glass-faced barrel at some far off beach.

i liked this one, it conveys to the reader the importance of talking AND listening, and makes the person remeber a good or bad time with evbery rythem, i like it alot

 always follow your heart, never follow others unless it is truely where you want to go, and never give up a dream, maybe just set it aside for a while... :)

Hi Jeremy
I like to listen more to people than talking myself and I believe that its not encouragin. sincerity while talking is very essential in  the understanding of people.
