While You Aren't Looking - Poem by TheSilent Loudness

I have to leave while you aren't looking
because if I saw your face while you watched me
I would never breathe again
I would never smile honestly
or jump gleefully with surprise
I couldn't bear to wear blush on my cheeks when I'm delighted
Or slip off my clothes at night with anybody else

I mean, I will.

I will be with other souls
I will show my all in no shy way
and hug my partners' history
But in truth, you were a gift to me
You showed me who I am
That I cannot sing a sour note to some ears, while to yours I
may as well be mute
And I do play a wonderful flute
But you weren't looking for my music, no you'd rather play chess and get undressed to the tick tock of the clock

Well, stardust, I am a man of song
And if you are deaf selectively at best, then I must find
my songbird who'll sing along.
