You Never Understood Me, A Poem

You never understood
me
the spoken
words
the sideways
glances
you smile, yet
you refrain
from connection
walk on by
just walk on by.
Yes smile,
smile –
with wild abandon
and assume you
know
what it feels
to breathe the stifled
air
of indifference.
It fills your lungs
invades your
heart
quiets the
soul’s quest
to shine. . .
You never understood
me
but you feel
that you’ve drawn
every line.
