Capable

Capable
Capable of taking care of other people
Too capable, too persistent, too gentle
When the rest of the world tries to be hard
I made up my mind that I wasn’t going to build this wall up
because what is intimacy when gaps and barriers bridge you
fires stay lit, only because these vacancies exist
empty words seal this envelope addressed to commitment
empty eyes conceal longings for truth and what’s real
tell me, look in to me, tell me what you see
do you see a child or an adult
Take me seriously
For real.
