Message Has Been Seen

You’re much too proud to answer
Don’t want to appear too keen
But every single message sent 
Has a check mark…meaning “seen”!

Won’t start up conversations
You won’t ask me how I’ve been
You keep it all under wraps
But my messages are…..”seen”!

You won’t come out and say it
But I know you’ve checked the screen
You answer what’s in my eyes
For my messages you’ve “seen”!

Sometimes I get so angry
I resolve myself to wean
From writing all my feelings…
But then the message comes…”seen”!

And so I keep on writing
Though you TRY to act so mean
At the end of every day
All my messages are…..”seen”!

    The comments, good or just polite, are the reasons we put parts of ourselves out there! The number of "views" is more important than the number who write a review. Everyone here can certainly identify with this... love and hugs, Jack

    I enjoyed your poem. For the final message hold the "z" key down severely / The person at the other end should get that message clearly. Have a wonderful weekend.
