How will I know

Source

I know I read palms

Telling people of their destinies

Warning them against misfortunes

Advising them how to avoid disasters


I know spirits talk to me in my dreams

Before my mother’s illness

I had dreams about her being close to death


But all my psychic powers evaporate

When it comes to you


If you don’t tell me

How will I know?


Explanation of poem

This was inspired at a stage in my life when I felt I was very psychic and felt in tune with almost everything in life except the one person who was closest to me.

I needed him to talk to me and not for me to guess everything that was going on in his head.

I understand, sometimes I have to drag talk out of my husband because we're not a chit chat couple. Voted up and beautiful.

Everyone is endowed with a Sixth Sense, but there are certain aspects that are not open to us...

Hi raciniwa. So true what you say and just as well certain aspects not being open to us as it could be a bit disturbing if we could hear what our partners were thinking all the time.

Oh my! This was me for so many years until I almost died with words unspoken....now you can't shut me up and I love expressing my feelings and thoughts. Beautiful poem, fantastic message and I am so happy that Mike pointed you out to me. Blessings and peace my new friend!

Hi again Billybuc I am glad you let those unspoken words come out in the end...My other half did too and now we are the closest friends.

I am glad to share my poems with you.

Thanks for your support.

Hi Chaya

I think many couples go through this. They think that their partner should know what they are feeling.

Voted up and awesome

Take care
