Message Has Been Seen

Written by: Eileen Manassian

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”!
