Hunger

FB_IMG_1441087620878

You speak to me in your own language
always
you never consider I speak another
since ever
you speak without thought
always
missing the whole of me
to make the whole of you,


I listen, knowing it is your own way
always
I remind myself, your language
is all you know but


sometimes, I cannot help myself from
feeling a haunting sadness
knowing you never knew me,
never will- for
you speak all your stories
always
missing the whole of me.
to make the whole of you.
