Stop forcing me to nod or shake my head.
Stop forcing me to say yes or no.
Stop screaming and shouting at me as though I’m attempting to speak over you.
Let me talk if you want a conversation, let me say something.
When will it be my turn to say something?
When will it be my turn to tell you what a disappointment you are, and that you are the worst hypocrite I know.
When will I get a chance to tell you that I’m angry, that you abandoned me and now that we’re here again I must let go of that but you must hold onto everything thing you say I did wrong?
If you won’t let me speak – Say nothing to me.
I’m suffocating. Drowning in all the words you need to hear. All the things you did wrong, I mean, since we’re keeping count.
Just shut up & listen. Or remain silent and drown like I do.
