e-Love

Those words we share

                and those we don't

The ones you use

                what do they mean?

So much is lost between the lines.

That inflexion or joy I might have heard

is mute

 

Those words we share

                and those we don't

The anger I feel in you

                what do your eyes show?

I can never know as I read the lines.

The thoughts behind the words you type

are hidden

 

Those words we share

                and those we don't

Sometimes blister off the screen

                screaming as I read them

You can fail to comprehend my love.

You probably feel that I am not listening to

your text

 

Those words we share

                and those we don't

You see my responses

                and think I do not answer

When I must have heard your message.

Do you know I answer all the words ever written

if not your meaning?

 

So much is lost between the lines

A wonderful poem and so appropriate for the world we now live in. Reading between the lines is not always easy! Well done! Thanks, Jane?
