So Close So Far - Poem by Abdul Wahab

You need not
To spell

Nor you need to explain
As I understand

Before you utter
What you want to say

But you do not understand
What I say

Though they lay
In front of you

Loud and clear
So no matter

How close
You sit

How long
We talk together

You can never
Become my dear

Until you change
Unless you stop

ignoring me further

    in every relation
    someone is giving
    someone is taking
    a lot
    and it needs to fix the balance of the scale for the best of all/ well done
