Mr. Understood

by Sefton Donald

When you see me

Do you really see me

Or only perceive misconceptions

& aim them in my direction 

When you hear me 

Do you really hear me

Or do you just hear a voice

& dismiss it as noise

When you like me

Do you really like me

Or is the real appeal 

In how I make you feel 

When you love me

Do you really love me

Or just love the thought of love

& this is close enough

When you miss me

Do you really miss me

Or are you just feeling lonely

And could always count on me

When you hate me 

Do you really hate me

Or just hate we not together 

& by hating you feel better


See me with your ears

Hear me with your eyes. 

Feel me from my voice

Let me touch you with my words


See me with your ears

Hear me with your eyes. 

Feel me from my voice

Let me touch you with my words
