How will I know
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.
