Did you overlook me?

Did you ignore my crying heart

as it attempted to connect in obscurity;

probably it extended one hand

in excess of a finger not exactly an arm;

did you see it?

Did you feel my tear?

Only one little drop, it didn't leave

this wet eye, too fragile to even think about being shown;

to calm to make a sprinkle

dried in the breeze before daylight

shone its surface;

did you feel it?

Did you hear my call?

The one I yelled yet without voice

the one that never left my mouth;

what's more, sounded so uproarious here

thus unobtrusively all over the place;

did you hear it?
