Why do you wear those shoes?

Why do you smile? Why are you shy?

Why do you wisper whisper?

Why aren’t you getting along?

Did something happen?

You raise your eyebrows, cross your arms,

Daze away…

Are you ashamed of your ____?

He relaxes, lets it go…she is there waiting

Why did I interject? But I caught her eye…

I said too much

This is not about me

She is there waiting, or is she?

He relaxed, let it go

      But she

Writes poetry

In her mind and wishes everyone would

Stop looking at me
