When he says not what he says and he does what he does not....... He speaks but what I hear is not what he says..... Then.. What then.

The Unspoken

Look not into my eyes
For when you look into them thus
I see that which you seek in them
All that thine eyes say in mute speech
The very thing you refuse to profess
That which you feel and need from me

And speak not to me, Oh!!! Please do not
For when you open your mouth to talk
I hear the silent whispers
Of the words you tell me and yet you tell me not
The things that you say and yet say not
But yet you cannot conceal from me

You speak the very opposite of all that you say
You make pretenses but not in that which you show
You push me away even as you draw me near
That which comes from you
You give me not what you give me still

So look not into these eyes of mine
For you ask of it and you detest it still
But then you want for it all
And speak not to me, be taciturn
For even in quiet, you say it all
