When Will You Realise..?
Author: Mike


You ask me how I am,
I tell you, "I'm fine."
But when you turn around
I whisper, "No I'm not."

Just loud enough..

You hear me.
My hopes rise.

"Do you have the time?"

Tears rise up as I
Shake my head no.
"No, I don't have time."
Deliberately missing the word.

You stare at me.
I gaze back, praying for
You to notice.
Pulling down the sleeves of
My top, as if hiding something.

A smile.
You turn away.
I'm alone once again.

As ever.

Trapped in the silent abyss
That promises to be my haven.

My grave..

I do really like this. Your style has changed in these few poems. I like it, its different.

My feelings have changed, too.. Calmed, but grown more intense, if that makes sense.. :S
