I See It

There’s a longing in your eyes
I see it in your blank stare
I see it when you lower your eyes
I see it in the tears you hold back

There’s sadness on your face
I see it in your unsure smile
I see it in your forced laugh
I see it when your lips droop

There’s emptiness in your life
I see it in your entangled fingers
I see it in your crossed arms
I see it when your arms twitch

There are unsaid words in your mouth
I see it in your pursued lips
I see it when you bite your tongue
I see it in your clenched teeth

There’s longing in my eyes to see you
There’s sadness on my face when you cry
There’s emptiness in my life without you
There are unsaid words that I want to say to you

Don’t you see it?
Don’t you see my eyes waiting for you?
Don’t you see my arms aching for you?
Why don’t you see what I’ve seen?
