.
.
You don't see it,
.
And it's naïve of me
.
To expect you to,
.
.
But it's relief -
.
All your compounded disappointment,
.
Your exponential frustration,
.
And all I crave is relief.
.
.
My satisfaction is just quiet,
.
It's just patient, and just silent;
.
It's the gentle, voiceless,
.
million proclamations
.
Wrapped into the smallest gesture
.
Of your connoting presence -
.
.
A touch that tells me you're still there,
.
That you're happy to stay,
.
That your relief
.
Is my relief
.
And that I can permit myself the pleasure
.
Of enjoying this moment's peace.
.
.
.
There's no real mystery to me -
.
.
My love proceeds sentimentality 
.
And the mutuality of shared dreams,
.
Percolating while fast asleep.
.
.
.

A really nice piece, well done! Till the very end it kept me wondering what it is the other person can't see, and at the end - It is beautiful!
