How many people I've looked

I wonder how many people I've looked at all my life and never seen.
John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent
 

Do I look up to you
Struggle for words
Frames and formations
Do I overlook everything else
None of me makes any sense
Nothing of you makes sense
Paucity of passions
Empty of emotions
I travel with so many
Many faces I've known
Nothing of them I know
Do you look up to me
and find words
Does a glance of me
Gives away any sense
or everything is lost upon
Remembrance

  1. Yes, we do this, look, judge and quickly forget.
    Even people (I think) I know well - I probably don't, don't look deep enough...
