I want to ask how you are
but I can't seem to make myself care
Because when you're talking to me
it's like I'm not even there
yet I'm listening every time you share.

I'll offer advice, I'll offer a shoulder,
but your ears are wrapped in self-absorption.
I can understand how you never change
unwilling to shift, not even a portion
as you rattle on, full of emotion.

I know I'm a listener
with a ready ear
but it's the job of the talker
to know when it's time to hear
and I'm telling you to get in gear.
