It’s a rare thing
to feel understood.
To know that someone else knows
all the things you do
and get’s why you do them.
The language is different
when you are with someone who gets you.
They sense the changes in your mood
no matter how quick the shift.
Whether you’re happy, hapless, hopeless or holed up.
The atmosphere is altered
while you both take each other in.
There’s a calm that reaches you even at your most agitated.
You can’t help but think,
This is alright.
it’s a rare thing
to be understood.*
Authors notes: I’m still feeling rather melancholy. That can’t always be helped 😶
