Communication of the Unspoken

My smile 


Secretly pleaded 

Was all I needed


It asked


For someone to fix the cracks and wavering

To acknowledge my joy and kindness 


My hands


Were shaking from all the irritation of others

Are shaking from all the affection of others


My words


Expressed my refusal of your time consuming ventures

Express my approval of your amusing adventures


My eyes


Avoided eye contact in fear of your pride and dominance

Stare right at yours, in case you've forgotten my confidence




Saved me from anything sever,

like not seeing a new year

Allows my friends and I to cheer,

for things like seeing a new year




I'm free

I'm free.
