Quality Time

You’re engaged when you tell your stories.

Touch my arm, my side, my hip.

Striving to make the connection.

But your eye wanders.

I watch you watch the pretties as they walk by.

Your eyes follow them.

As if they are more important.

And my walls go up.

When I tell stories you don’t hold focus.

And my walls go up.

You let your attention be elsewhere.

And my walls go up.

How can there be a connection… when you don’t connect?

I don’t know if you know that you do this.

But you should.

Because you can not make a connection if you don’t give your connection.

And for me, I say “no thank you” because if I am not the focus of your attention, you are not worthy of my committment.
