When someone you think you know well feels poorly,
you come to these little shady spots, now and then.
Little tucked away places, where you learn….
The preferred socks.
The favorite candy.
The truth about every little thing.
Why he likes mayonnaise.
What he has been wishing for all along.
What he misses.
What he will do next.
You hear the agony of regret,
The glory of accomplishment,
The deep and soulful desires.
You realize you were listening all along,
But maybe were waiting to believe it.
