You knew my words, knew them well
That what they meant; what they said
That they were my dreams, and my fears
My frustrations, my compassion
My deep desires; my strong feelings
My rising anger; my sarcasm
My innocent love; maddening lust
They were my thoughts; filled with you!
You knew that they were seldom complete
Always failed to convey thoughts
Much remained, yet to be said
Spoken words killed unsaid thoughts
You looked for meaning; beyond my words
Between lines, between words
Behind my smile, inside my eyes
You always found, those hidden thoughts
You found them nice; making you smile
You found them naughty; letting you laugh
You found them profound; making you think
You found them sad; bringing tears!
Then something changed; what was that?
Was that you or your world?
Was it my words, or my thoughts?
What did turn you suspicious?
Now you don’t find those left out thoughts
You don’t find those unsaid words
They don’t make you smile anymore
They do scare you easily now!
Where have those teasing smiles gone?
Where did the suspicious stare come from?
My words are same; my thoughts are same
To me at least, I am the same
It must be you and your views
That changed a lot and changed for good
My thoughts are free, my words are free
Now way above you and far beyond you!
Seeing a world that was unknown
Much wider and much deeper
With all the problems and the prospects
All the thrills of exploring!
I thank you for freeing my words!
I thank you for my open thoughts!
