When I want you to know (Day 600)


now   when I want you 
to know   your eyes 
slide to the right 

you are gazing 
out our window   
but not seeing
what I see 

how   when I want you
to hear   can I reach
across this room and

all those years   too many 
words   fall   silent
on your distant shores
