My Speakers

The volume
is cranked up high
way too high

My speakers
screaming out your name

I hear them, but I don’t know
why you need to shout to the

Sometimes losing control
is the only way to gain it

You’ve been screaming out my name
in words, I can’t understand

You’ve gotten under my skin
in my head, through my ears

My hearing, my thinking
my everyday ways, your smile

I think, I’ve lost my hearing
listening to your words

If only, I understood them
as well…….
