Black Bird

Hello bird, how are you?
I’m fine with my chaotic life.
Why do I notice you?

I see you everyday, at this exact time
When I pass this place.
Has my child like mind finally cracked?
Why do your eyes resemble those of humans?
You have wings but remain to the ground.
Why do I notice you?
What have you been through?
Are you ashamed to notice me?
Like I am ashamed to notice you?

Hello bird, what are your thoughts?
Why do we cross paths?
But can not talk?
