Can You Hear Me (revisited) Concrete Style

Today’s form: concrete poetry  Today’s device: anaphora/epistrophe I took a previously posted poem and revamped it for this assignment.  

Of course, I used an app ( to help me with my form. 😉

Can U Hear Me

When I looked at you with my eyebrow arched to ask what you were thinking about.

Did You Hear Me?

When I turned my head slightly to the left with my eyes with a squint to ask you if I should really trust you

Did you hear me?

When I stayed up all night while you slept like a baby to ask you if we are making the right decisions in life

Did you hear me?

When I stayed home and never went out with friends who asked me to to make you understand you are the only one for me

Did you hear me?

When I fought the girl who disrespected you to prove I had your back through infinity

Did you hear me?

When I accepted your family and friends in our home to tell you I was a team player

Did you hear me?

When I screamed from the top of my soul for your attention

Did you hear me?

When I didn’t call even though I look at your number at least once a day to tell you I love you

Did You hear me?

Mr. Officer when you stopped to ask if I was alright even though I was walking in the middle of a busy street on the double yellow line, I gave you an empty stare screaming that I had been violateed

Did you hear me?

When I threw my phone out of frustration of your continued neglect

Did you hear me?

When I wanted to go to school to better myself because I NEEDED to do something for me, so I can be a better person 4u

Did you hear me?

When I looked at you in the hospital bed trying to be strong and kept calm in front of you but was screaming on the inside

Did You Hear me?

When I drank myself to sleep night after night because I was so unhappy

Did you hear me?

Maybe if I had spoken the words you would have heard me, but when you say “you got me” and “you understand me” those are the things I mean. If you cannot hear me or will not hear me, then you cannot have me.


Just a little something I have been thinking about writing for a few weeks now,

there is a lot more to add but I will probably save that for my book.

Sometimes we expect others to see through us but they can’t so that leaves tons unsaid.

Thanks for reading
