Poem: What do you see?

What do you see 
When you look at me?
Can you see through
My vain attempts
At concealing
My uncertain
Faltering courage?
Can you sense
How I seek
Despite every rational 
Bone in my body?

What do you see 
When you look at yourself?
Do you see as I see
Your every vulnerability?
The story unfolding 
Before my eyes
In so many unspoken

Do I really know you
As well as I do
Without ever knowing you?
My soul like a sponge
Absorbs every imagined emotion
Twists and turns with you
For no reason other than
You remind me of me
Not so long ago

Can the universe 
Really be
Such a small space?

(c) VedicVerses (Rucha Gokhale)
