    My heart calls for you
    But your ringer is off

    Is there any other way that we could get in touch?

    My body spells out your name in my sweat at night
    But you can't seem to read my body language

    Is there any other way for you to see?

    My soul “knows” we are right
    But for some reason your intuition tells you wrong

    Is there any other way for you to sense this urgency of “us”?

    My mind tells me that you are the “one”
    But you are not a mind reader

    Is there any other way for you to know?

    Maybe I should just tell you

    But then would u avoid the obvious?

    thank you but this piece is truly about declaration and rejection all rolled up in one thanks for sheding different perspectives on it, however if one avoids or seems to conveiently not know of the obvious well ......theres your answer

    WOW !!!!

    I was lookin to read someone i've never read and **** !!!

    I wasn't expecting to ... this was personal .

    Not knowing me -- your words describe a situation of mine.

    this was beautiful.

    I've been on both sides of the obvious myself.
