A writer is a world trapped inside a person

Did you know I listened

When you didn't speak

And heard the silent words you said

When your eyes were dull and weak

In silver strings like spider webs

In clumps and corners like dust

You told me all I didn't need to know

And everything I must

You told me what you yearned for

And of what you are afraid

You told me how you hated yourself

And how you were remade

In little blinks and tiny touches

In the movements of your eyes

I heard everything you didn't say

When you put on that disguise

But you can't hide from me

Like you think you must

I will always know you

Beyond those whom you trust

So if you're feeling fragile

Just look at me my dear

I heard every word you said already

Even the ones you didn't hear.
