False Comunication


I be

You be

We be

but we don't hear each other because you see the words that I say

that don't communicate how I feel

because they are words on a 1 1/2 glowing screen.

You take it wrong because you hear me differently than what I am saying

because you don't see the longing in my eyes

you take it as sarcasm, which is farther than the truth

Can we just go back to the olden days, when we walked hand in hand in the park,

sat across from each other at dinner with no mobile devices to interrupt the gaze in

your eyes

I need real

You to really hear me, for me to hear you

For us, to just be
