be merciful

more I try to decipher you

the more I get entangled

your silence is disconcerting

your words are confounding

your Pauses are perplexing

your nuances are deceptive

your undertones are obscure

you don’t disperse the clouds away

you don’t ever clear the haze

the more I try to find my way

the more I cede to your maze

shall I learn the telepathy

or shall I use a mind reader

I can’t remain a helpless guy

be little merciful O my dear!
