Talking Constantly Isn’t Necessarily Communicating

You smell like old money,
And I wear a halo.
We talk for hours,
But it’s always the same, oh.
You don’t know anything about me.

We talk constantly,
But there’s nothing to say.
So I grit my teeth; stifle a sigh.
While you’re running your mouth,
I think up a witty reply.

Well, you could buy the high horse,
And it would still be the same.
I’m an enigma of the heart, victim of the brain.
If this is all there is, then I swear I’m calling it quits.
Yeah, you don’t know anything about me.

Your cold, gun metal coins keep hitting the pine.
It’s the same old sanguine routine on a Saturday night.
Your lips keep moving, but you’re not getting any closer to me.
Why don’t I hang up my angel wings when I’ve had enough?
Talking constantly isn’t necessarily communicating, oh.
You don’t know anything about me.
But the empty speech just won’t let up.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
