What do you want from me today, tomorrow and the day after?
I listen to you from a distance so that your voice can sound softer.
You say things about me without a thought to how it makes me feel.
I am not ready to talk to you openly if I feel you are not worth the reveal.
You want to talk softly about me when I am there in the room upstairs.
I can hear every word and I will tell you so when I come downstairs.
Why do you think I won’t do this thing that you want me to do?
I always have a reason for not doing something that I can’t later undo.
You think I am cute with a happy, forgiving heart at your disposal?
I hope you know me better to know that I never accepted your proposal.
You may think I don’t know about the world that stands outside my door.
Need I remind you that I don’t spend a lot of time just remaining indoor.
I hear your thoughts before you utter a word as I know you so well by now.
I wish I could get you to enter my world if only my feelings would allow.
Take care of yourself as you go about handling me in your particular way.
There will come a time when I would have learned enough and moved away.
