LIP SERVICE

Lips parted
As if to talk
But there is no one
No one to listen
In this crowded room
People pressing against one another
None looking at the other
She closed her mouth
Knowing
That one word
One word wouldn't
Wouldn't even help
Deaf by their own making
Rather hear their own voices than others
Well...
Maybe one word
Maybe it'll help
But seeing those turned faces
Those closed eyes
Those deaf ears
The thought of that one word
Overwhelming

Yeah, people always like that, not listening.
Anyway, nice word you use.
