Sometimes I Wonder

Sometimes I wonder—
is it clear to you

Why I act like a fool, and say what I do?
Please, would you gaze
Behind my sad blue eyes—?

you might find something
to take you by surprise.

Sometimes I wonder—how do you feel?
Do you share this moment, or are you too real?

Too standard to see take the time to see-
Too simple to take a look at me

I spend hours thinking…
Caught in an idle trance

Are you so oblivious
to my desperate glance?

Sometimes I wonder
Sometimes I yearn

For now I’ll put ice
on my stinging heart burn.
