What are you looking for?
1 year ago · · poems,
You’re an animal
Listening for words that you can comprehend
That you can understand and react to
You stand waiting, staring, for the sounds that give you a will
A friend that cares but only when the common vocabulary is used
You are normal but unresponsive
You sit, you lie down and you sleep waiting for your next word
But when a word is said to you that you don’t understand you pause
You wonder what am I saying
Waiting to hear the words you want to hear
Waiting for your next bit of excitement your next treat.
But the words I’m saying aren’t treats
Aren’t words you know
Cause how can you Understand when you don’t know my vocabulary
