Can you hear the things I don’t say

See my reactions without looking at my face

Do you feel the shade left on read

I know that it’s about communication

But too often we only focus on the words said rather than unspoken

Trying to understand me takes context, pre text …sub text and a Concordance

But even still you make the effort

Pinpointing my inaccuracies with laser like precision

When my stars don’t align

Even when I only say it one time

As if you know me, but how could you

So I’ll stay giving you the side eye

Until time has proven to me that you can see the invisible

Reach the unreachable

Find all that is hidden without tapping out

Stay with it even when I regress

I know… I’m complex
