following along

Mumbles.

I, mumble when I talk, when I think I am speaking loudly. No one can hear me, I repeat myself constantly and it drives me insane.

I, mumble when I talk, when I think everyone is listening. But everyone picks through my words and believes I say the things that I never said.

I, mumble when I talk, when I believe everyone is following along. I make the sounds, say the words, and no one seems to hear me. Can you hear me now? Can you hear the spaces between the words and the syllables that follow?

I, mumble when I talk and I think everyone can hear me.

I, mumble when I talk.
Imumble whenItalk.
ImumblewhenItalk.

But no one is fucking listening.
