Whenever I respond to an SMS or a gTalk/Hangouts message, it is hidden under the keyboard. Afterwards, if whomever I am talking with responds, their message is hidden further below. This is causing me to constantly scroll the conversation up to see what's the latest message is.

When looking in a thread, and pulling a keyboard to type something, everything looks fine. This only happens after initiating a conversation by sending a message.

My device is a Verizon Galaxy Note II running CyanogenMod 11.

Apparently, this is also an animation issue. According to an answer for my dialer app, setting the animation to .5x fixes a lot of spacing/hiding issues on the phone.

To fix it, do the following:

Go to Settings > Developer Options

Change Animator Duration Scale to 0.5x

Many props to Abid Rahman K for figuring it out!
