Please don't tell me how attentive I seem

Please don't tell me how well I listen

Do not praise me for when I was there for your cries

Or explain that I am trustworthy,

That I can keep secrets

Because it truly does not matter

Whether you are friend or foe

Since everyone needs somebody

To hear their troubles and worries

And if I ask for you ear and attention,

Do not interrupt my train of thought

(Because then it'll crash)

I don't wish for your advice or worries,

I just want my feelings outside

For then it is easier to organize and mend
