What is possible in this moment?

Do you think it is possible to know someone?

To really know them, when their days are
separate from yours and they don’t talk
about their feelings. Do you think
it’s possible they know who you
are when they never ask?

Do they pay close attention
when you tell them the 
details of your 
day?

Do you think it’s possible to see someone?

To really see them but not really see 
them and mistake them for another 
or some imagining of yours.

Are they your wish
or your design
or desire?

If they don’t know you
And they don’t see you
Do you exist?


I was curious when I saw the Pixabay credit for this photo: Passt gut aug euch auf und bleibt gesund! It’s German for Take good care of yourself and stay healthy.
