i will listen forever

You've Never Been Too Much

do you remember the first time you were called annoying?

how your breath stopped short in your chest the way the light drained from your eyes

though you knew your cheeks were ablaze the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.

your eyes never left the floor that day. you were 13.

you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,"

apologies littering every other sentence, words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years

i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious

all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard for 3 minutes for 10 minutes for 2 hours forever

there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart

mostly because they can’t handle their own. but you will never be and have never been"too much.
