A New Friend

You seemed like someone I’d like

But as you silently watched me

You looked straight through me

 

You saw beneath my enthusiasm

Instantly

To the uncertainty below

 

I thought I’d entertain you

Thought I’d win you over

But you knew more than that

 

You smiled with me

Made me feel part of your group

But your eyes told me

A different story 

 

You weren’t there to scold me

You had solidity

You weren’t there to judge

You just watched

Absorbed

Maybe a protector

 

Eventually I was silenced

No leap needed

A quiet road began

 

I was right

I like you.
