Bare Perception

It’s about the way we perceive the ordinary,
the already there,
the things that have become home.

The way we feel about yet another sun rising,
about a simple thunderstorm.

It’s about how you perceived me as a given,
as someone who could stay
when consideration was no longer made.

The way you evaded my sentiment
when all I wanted was for words to be said.
