he cannot hear you
the back and forth, is with yourself
he’s gone off line
the things you thought were so,
were merely for show
he wanted only to know
he needed affirmation to be kind
you say, he showed you more when he looked at you
he wanted you to see,
of course –
how else would he gather your most mystical flowers?
why would you offer them, if it wasn’t so?
and then he saw more than himself
what was real, he would not steal
he would not dampen,
your cloudless heart.
