The listener

The listener

A Poem by z.chéri

Always be you.

The listener didn't listen
for once and that caused
destruction in their life
but somehow they fell 
in love with the chaos.

The talker didn't talk
for once and that caused
them to feel a little uneasy
as their voice wasn't heard
during the rumble of fairness.

The silent talked and 
the loving bled their
deepest sorrows and 
people didn't know how
to retaliate them.

The lost were found
and all was well until
the living found a way
to escape the hardships
that life always provided.

My favorite part is the verse beginning with "The silent talked", very moving. The only thing I'd say is spoke might flow better but regardless the poem is beautiful.
