Hooked On A Feeling - Blue Swede
Thoughts of a Deaf Child
My family knew that I was deaf
When I was only three, and since then fifteen years ago
Have never signed to me.
I know when I’m around the house,
I try and use my voice,
It makes them feel more comfortable;
For me, I have no choice.
I try, communicate their way-
Uncomfortable for me.
My parents wouldn’t learn sign
Ashamed or apathy?
I never cared about the sound of radios and bands;
What hurts me most is, I never heard
My parents’ signing hands.
i was tricked into going to my old dorm’s wing meeting last night and i was half expecting someone to say
"rule no. 1, you cannot date your RA. repeat, do not date your RA. it’s not allowed. don’t do it. just don’t."
lots of cute guys in my life, but none are available
boo. time to take a nap.
up at 6 am for work again, time to go make complicated coffees and horribly misspell names on cups
"why dont you just give him a chance"
idk because im not physically or mentally attracted to him and ‘but he likes you’ or ‘but hes really nice’ isnt going to change the fact that im not interested
Damn, I don’t think women know how much that really hurts
