letters you will never get

i'm in the same room as you

i feel like we are thinking different things

i want to see inside your head

i want to pick through all your thoughts

see if any are about me

i'll try not to act surprised when i see none

i can't always be serious around you

i'm not sure why

i feel like i'm always being looked at, judged

so do i need to be on my toes all the time

or don't you care

I've felt this sense of longing and I can relate to your words.
