I Spy

How often have you gaped
Gawked, stared or gazed?
Whatever you may call that;
Well, it’s all the same.

Watched someone gently smile,
Busy in conversation with themselves,
Heaving a sigh or looking skywards.
Yawning, laughing or lost in thoughts;

Sulking, grumbling, mourning, rambling,
Weeping inwardly with lips all parched,
Contemplating, preying on their nails;
Battling odds within, wearing a trite façade.

How often have you observed people
Without ever being noticed?
And while at it, have you ever thought,
You’re one of them who’s also being watched?
