Conversation

When you speak to me, I never know what me I should be.

Should I be the listener, stay silent to let you extend your thoughts to cover the both of us. 
Use proper body language to show I'm listening, eye contact, but not too piercing. 

Or should I take the confident role, at a party, to protect us both from the awkward silences.
Talk about anything, but keep it interesting, otherwise you'll think I'm boring. 

What about the evangelist, taking your words and pointing them to Jesus. 
I'll only listen to find connections, I'm not really interested in life's complexions. 

Then there's the friend, who doesn't care what my next sentence is going to be. 
It doesn't matter where this conversation is heading, because we are spending it together.
