“He seems so alive,
So full of drive.”
But would you see beyond that?
Would you see the deep cut?
Would you see the question marks in his eyes?
Or would you just call him crazy and unwise?
“He seems so focused,
But would you hear his confusion?
Or the Why he loves his seclusion?
Would you see the indecision in his aura?
Or why he tries to run away from drama?
“He seems so quiet,
Even when he is crying.”
Would you even understand him as a poet?
Would you understand, then, why he cannot open?
Or why he chooses a poem?
He may seem alive, focused and quiet,
But would you dare know him well? Then be silent.
