What do you..

What do you see, when my face you look at..
Do you see my lips curved in a smile.
Or the furrow of my brows..
Or the worry in my eyes.

What do you hear, when my voice you hear
Do you hear the laugh.
Or the trepidation I feel..
Or the sob that I hold back.

What do you feel, when my hand you hold..
Do you feel the soothing touch.
Or the need to hold on tight
Or the desperation of my grip.

You do feel all of what I feel, don’t you..
And continue to hold on strong, just for me.
You do feel the heaviness in the heart, don’t you..
And still stand as my rock, weathering everything without a word.

  1. Well!

    I imagine that he sees something not-far-off from who is there, yet never quite precisely so.

    The real question is, does this constitute a tragic flaw of the human condition, or the saving grace which allows us to experience mystery and wonder in this terribly predictable world?

    I appreciate your use of repetition and parallelism in this piece. I also enjoy the sparing, measured application of meter. I realize that your ink is not intended for explication (or, as I like to consider it, dissection) but I like to praise the praiseworthy as articulately as possible.

    It’s nice to have fresh, new poetry on the Internet for my pleasure at the click of a button. Thanks for penning it.

    Respectfully and Sincerely,


  2. I’m thinking if I should copy this and tell my sweetheart I wrote this for her.

    But I don’t think I should.

    She’d know in a second it’s not me and then I’d get killed!

    Hehehaha! 😛
