Life - Why Don't They Listen - Poem by Paul Warren

Why don't they listen
Do they feel that they are right
So that you don't count!

Is it that they have
A point that is theirs
You lose before you start!

So in the end
What do you do when you see
That it can never be!

    I too silently saw
    your lips quicker
    as your whole body
    did shiver

    I was engaged and amazed
    at your inner silence
    between my eyes
    you speared
    your intelligence


    silently uttered those
    desired words
    one lover says
    to another
    how he and she
    also wish to hear


    but you blush only
    no answer you give
    but a silent
    one does hear


    you say come near
    sweetness endear

    good urs also

    Beautiful form, Paul. The question provokes thought. I hope that thought is how answers arise
    Be happy my friend
