Ordinary


I see what you want
I see what you feel
You wonder if it can be real
What if I knew
That what you sensed
Is not just imaginary mist
A dream, a ghost,
Another world
Underexposed
Is something that flows
Something that is a part of me
Something I know you don’t see
You only think you see me
The one you think you want
The one you think you feel
But what you don’t know
Is that you see straight through me

Blinded by a magic that is not mine
You follow me obliviously
Grazing the waves of my mind
A world made shallow with naivety
Numb to a depth unfathomable
Except for a tingle
That pulls you, holds you
Leaves you insatiated

I want you to stay
But I’m not what keeps you
It’s the reason I don’t trust you
I want you to know
But what would it mean
If you stood there in front of your dream
I can’t be the one to show you
There may be a chance
The glare of that glance
Will only make you want more
Of what blinds you from me

I want you to know
To see your dream
To share my dream
To see what you are sensing
I can’t hold your hand
But can you show me?
Show me my human side
How we share our insides
Show me that we are not that different
And that you like me for that
Show me that you see the magic
Of an ordinary day exploring the path
No black cats or rabbits in hats
Just a card game you never win
That you play over and over again
With your best friend
You will never know,
My friend,
But I’ll play this game too
Until I see you see
The magic in ordinary you and me
