silent partner

this passive person
has no doubts
but all the time
to think them out
he’s seldom apprehensive
almost always pensive
staring somewhere wistfully
never really seeing me

maybe he’s alive in dreams
maybe then he laughs and screams
maybe he buys real estate
maybe he participates
out here he just aggravates
who knows what life inside may be
i sure don’t know,  he won’t  tell me
