Look Who's Talking

written by: Leanne Howard Kenney

What is there to talk about?
Anger you hurl at me
As about you abruptly turn
And down the hall walk away from me

I have
my deep abiding faith in you
I have
my hopes my dreams for you
I have
my cares my worries for you
I have
my heart that aches for you
I have
my soul that prays for you
I have
my lungs that breathe for you

But sealed stay my lips
Shame, bowed my head

And I,
Beating heart dread,
Rise to follow you where?
Then sit down knowing you do not care

So there you go
And here I sit
You believing I do not care
Believing I do not love you
Knowing all I do
Never good enough for you

So what is there to talk about?
We have nothing to say.

My name is Leanne Howard Kenney.
I am a former speechwriter and press secretary for former San Diego City Councilmember current San Diego County Supervisor, Ron Roberts.
I am a former Sportswriter. A former political writer. A former public relations copy writer. A former newspaper reporter. A former . . .
Apparently, I am a former writer.
Well, that is not quite true.
I have been writing poetry on my own for quite a while. And, I have been writing the odd article here and there for my own and my friends' pleasure for years.
I started posting my poetry approximately a year ago. Where they came from, I know not.
I am just glad they came.
I hope you enjoy what I have to say.
