Can’t you see?

Can’t you see?

I’m bursting at the seams
trying to contain all that
I feel for you. For once,
I want you to shut up.

I want you to stop talking,
and start listening to
the increasing unrest
of the unsaid words that

is brimming inside of me.
For once, I want you
to sit up and take notice.
I want you to be amazed

astonished spellbound by
all that I am.
I want your jaw to drop as
you unwittingly discover

strange new shores in
a world that you thought
was familiar. I want you to
stutter and stumble and fall

and never get up.
For once, I want you to
walk in my shoes.
Can’t you see?
