Onions of a Glass Body

I’m insensitive

I don’t see

I don’t hear

The true words

People are trying to tell me

So they cry out

That I am hurting them

That I don’t understand

.

Like onions

They have layers

Upon layers

Thin layers

Thick layers

All opaque layers

Create a single color

Coating as a solid

Skin over the heart

.

But what if I could see the hearts

Beating

In a crystal clear body

What if I could hear the reverberations

Of the words they try to say?

.

Would I even know how to

Properly react then?

If they didn’t know

I could hear their thoughts

And heard them

Asking for affection,

A hug

In their deepest heart

Would bestowing it

Offend them?

.

Is it better to just grope blindly?

Or to do as they say in that secret place?

Which will be the better choice

Of action for me
