Woes of a Logical Person: II

*
*
I pass you by
and then I sigh
I can’t seem to be seen
I want, I need to believe
That you still feel something


You pass mii and then you sigh
I think that you disapprove
I follow your every move
I want, I need to believe
That you feel anything



This is harder than I thought
I think on how to act
So I contemplate and strategize
and so I never act


I’m waiting for you to act
I think on how to act
Your silence makes mii think
and so I never act


Re-act
Re-spond
In vain we wait


Because
I am you
and You
are mii

hmmm...deep. Two people so intertwined that two thoughts become one thought, so if one person is waiting for a reaction, it will be a complete waste of time?

See, I'm trying to dissect the analogy here...lol. Love it!

Two mismatched hearts trying to mix, But bleeding in the effort,
Rubbing off already torn edges Against each other,
Straining against the fastened bonds
But leaving stretch marks in its wake...

i swear i have no idea why i just wrote that...your post put the image in my mind...

sorry bout the poetical graffiti tho...

I am awestruck by this poem…I enjoyed reading it...remember it does not have to go our way everytime because there is a reason but it will get better…

@ ijeoma: so true

@ jaycee: ha! yeah basically. try and imagine two ppl. that think alike being in a relationship. So yeah, each waiting for absolutely nothing because the other person is also waiting. beatifully screwed up.

@nameless.poetical: hmmmm, now u have mii thinking. i mean mismatched??
could it be that what draws them towards each other is also what leaves the scars?
hmmm

@9ja opeke: amen
