Can anyone hear me?

Can you hear what I do not say?

What I fear to say?

What I cannot say?

I can hear you,

But can you hear me?


I see you listening to me,

I notice you figure out nothing,

I can tell what you mean to say,

But you don’t say it at all.

But do you see what I don’t say?


Maybe you try,

Maybe you want to open your eyes,

But you must open your mind first.

No, you don’t know me,

You can’t hear me,

You can only listen to what I say,

But you don’t hear me at all.
