I believe, I know

I believe, I know

A Poem by Moniba

I know
What you want me to know
And I know
Nothing more than that

But I see
What I want to see
And I dwell
On a lot more than that

I hear
What you want me to
And I hear
That other part too 

I think
What you want me to think
And I ponder
Upon a lot more than that

I believe
What I think is right
But I know
It is more than that

Nice flow of thoughts and I like how you expanded each set of lines to ensure the reader felt the need to see and feel more. I believe if you try to control something. Sooner or later it will desire freedom from your control. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

First thing first, nice image!!

What I love about your poem is that its always adored with simple diction which are yet quite powerful to create an impact! It is well penned with an elegant portarayal of the idea. Sometimes people wants us to sense what only they can…yet as you have said,there is always much more than that. "The reality might all just be an illusion." Yet when I connect the first stanza with the others, its a trifle confusing. You meant that you rely upon that person in the first place. But the following stanza meant that you can sense far more than what that person is telling you. I mean, that is what I got. May you please explain it to me?

Anyway, it is a nice poem.thanks for sharing!
