You Wanted Me To See You – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


“I want to be in love with you the same way I am in love with the moon with the light shining out of its soul.” Sanober khan

You Wanted Me To See You

Moon whispered softly,
I saw you clearly as I
looked in your midnight window,
content in your dallied traverse,
risking your carpeted domain 
to open windowed review,
your thoughts naked,
your eyes telling a story so 
easily given away, but then,
you wanted me to see you.

  3. We all want to be seen, heard, and understood. Why not by the moon? To be known requires that we make ourselves vulnerable, as the moon rightly observes in this ingenious and beautiful poem. Loved this, Paul! ❤ have a great day!
