Welcome Back

She's pretty good at poker face,
So I may not see anything when
I go back to work next week,
And we'll be as we long have been:
Two people who are proximate,
But act as if they're worlds apart.
I'd rather she returned to wanting
Eagerly to speak with me.
Barring that, a fleeting smile,
Or a quiet “welcome back”
Would please me, but I'm fairly
Sure I'll get the poker face.

you world seem fantastic:you only need to speak to be listened to , in real life, it happens that people don't want to be talked to
