What do you think of me?

The comfort of knowing

What do you think of me?

Write me a poem

Sing me a song

Tell me you love me

Or hate me

Just don’t make me wait

Please don’t make me sit

And think

Or ponder

What you think of me

-

When I’m alone

I search in the archives of our conversations

Our memories

Our laughs, smiles, smirks

Winks

I look back at the tears

Averted gazes

-

The silence

-

In it whispers truths and untruths

Of which they are, I can't tell you

I can’t even begin to tell myself

But I try

-

In the silence I see everything

Nothing

All blurred into one

I see what is, what was

And what never will be

-

Blinded by the need to know

What you think of me

-

It shouldn’t mean, to me, what it does

But here I cling to the idea, to me, of what should

Or could…be?

    Brilliant and humble, loud and quiet, timid yet bold, generous, kind, compassionate and in tune with The Father.

  • one of my annoyances when creating on this site is that format is hard to control here. part of poetry is format and it's unfortunate that the poems suffer for stylistic issues.
