Behind These Words

Do you see me
In my castle in the clouds
Behind walls that are so thick
I can’t even see myself

Do you see me
When your hand is out of reach
Your eyes are out of sight
And miles away
There are your feet

Do you see me
When I dissolve in mist
When I am lost in love
And I am the one
I don’t want to be with

Do you see me
When ears have been deceived
As my mouth speaks
A language other than
My heart had wished to speak

Do you see me
Here
Behind these words
