Understanding each other

by cricketjeff on July 17, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

I never say the words she hears me speak
And I in turn hear everything she dreams
Within the outer reaches of mystique
Deciphering your love’s unconscious streams

I never need to wait to hear her thought
Before my words are formed she knows my mind
Communication of a special sort
An intranet of most unusual kind

But there are days she hears what I don’t mean
And moments when I miss her greatest need
Between two souls can be a deep ravine
A place to sow misunderstanding’s seed

Without a word we know what isn’t so
Express yourself and happiness will grow

Prompt:

It is not necessary to word your phrase, your silent words can bring the same meaning sometimes…Unknown
