    Eyes shut
    heart open.
    I listen for
    the sound.
    That tells me
    that you
    feel me.
    With my words
    I courted you
    Invited you
    To want me.
    My mind wraps
    around the idea
    that maybe you
    don't.
    I read the signals wrong.
    Maybe I wanted
    you so bad I imagined
    that you wanted the
    same.
    So I sit here and
    I second guess
    my instincts.
    Eyes shut
    heart open
    looking for an answer.

    Thank you
    late night thoughts
    seem to come out a
    little different than
    I expected.
    Who know what else I'll come up with.

    I'm really diggin your work. Yes, sometimes you can imagine what you want, and sometimes you can be led to think what you want. If you feel it say it, may not be easy to face but, the truth is better than uncertainty.
