I Know...

I can’t tell you want I want
Because
I know that you know it already.
I know that you can understand my silence
And hear my heartbeat.

I know that you can decipher my expressions
And rightly interpret the unsaid.
I am sure that you know what I want;
And that I try to sustain you.
You know everything.

I know that you are ignoring what I want
But, for how long, I want to ask
Yet, words fail me because I know….
I know that you can’t avoid it forever.
I know that you have to face it someday

And I hope that day dawns soon
Please understand that I can’t share you
I can’t even imagine that; it’s painful
You have never hurt me,
Then why now or ever; I want to ask

I want to ask you to think
Beyond the inhibitions and resistance
Can you think about me; about us?
I wish you don’t fail me; fail us
I want to ask you all this

But, I won’t!
Because
I know that you know it already.
I know that you can understand my silence
And hear my heartbeat.

  1. ugh. so hard...relationships...love...and communication...
    i think i would take the risk and say it...because we can assume they know
    but perhaps they are waiting to make that first move as well
    and then if no one does...where do we all end up?

  2. What a wonderful poem Locomente ... long poems aren't really my "cup of tea" to write, but I love reading them. Thank you for visiting Carpe Diem Haiku Kai ... and those 32 watches? Well .... I would say keep them, to know the time is nothing wrong with.

  4. It is so hard when two people don't seem to be on the same wavelength as far as what they want, need, or expect. Your words conveyed a difficult situation well.

  5. Silence -- that understood or perceived understood can be the most damaging... sometimes it's better to speak up... men are more stupid than you might think.

      I agree! Men can be stupid; confused rather!

  6. I missed you and all your heartbreaks... looking forward to words that will express your escape. Meaning...you do express yourself very well and artistically... even if it in a tea cup :-)
