I see you
I hear you
Not hearing me
I pretend to be you
Pretending to care
I watch you
I turn away
As you turn to see
I bare witness
As you quickly judge
I see you
Thinking you see me
I know you
Never know me
I spill my love
You spew your hate
Something about the last couplet really nailed it.
Thanks. I am glad you liked it.
Awesome writing John! Love it.
Thanks Patty. It always makes me smile when you drop by with kind words. I hope you are doing well my friend.
Much conveyed in these few and powerful words. I really like this one.
Thank you so much.
Wow, John. The brevity and power of your words spoke volumes. You have such immense talent — I truly need to find some time to come back and drown myself in your words again. I also miss our time together and that cosmic connection — although that connection has not been broken or even bent. 😉
Just glad to see you here when you find the time. Thank you for such a compliment. I admire your writing so much and am glad you deem my words worthy of your time. So happy to hear our connection is not showing any wear. Hard to know when neither of us seem to have the time to hang out. Perhaps we should write again soon so we can catch up. LOL.
Your words, your friendship, your wisdom, your connection — are all worth much more than just my time. I look forward to our next duet — as it does seem to be the only time we are able to “connect” and have an actual conversation! I’ll be waiting for you to let me know when you are available. Hugs, friend!
“I watch you wither, accept your fate” – genius. You are one talented writer, my friend!
Thank you so much CBXB my friend. I am so happy you enjoy my style.
Sir John, damn this is powerful, raw emotion hitting hard.
Thank you Marcus. This was a very quick write as it was something that I had to purge from my system. Probably the closest I have come to an uninterrupted free write yet. Glad it’s raw emotion shone through.
It did. As the moon so I howl again
a brutally honest perspective. Sadly, so many live there every day. GREAT post!
Thank you Morgan. Simple everyday life experiences, conversations, and things I over hear (in this case) seem to be driving my creativity of late.
Thats the best way to be Inspired, I think 🙂
Sometimes we have to exhale the bad shit to be able to inhale the good shit. 🙂

I like it when my older stuff gets revisited, or newly discovered by followers. It gives me a chance to see it again too. I really like this piece. Thanks Lisa
