The Chair

Sit down next to me
I’ll get up in a moment or two
this is when you should tell me that
you can’t hear me over the sound
of all the connections breaking down
I can slide away for a moment
make some space in an instant

But you say, there is no need
You will sit at my feet
I look down and see you there
holding onto your knees

Sit here, next to me
I’ll get up in a moment or two
just as soon as I’m sure that
this is when I should tell you
that I can hear your voice
breaking through all the whispers
I can just move aside, see
how I make room for your reality

But you say, there is no need
You will sit at my feet
and I look down to see you there
holding onto your knees
You said that there was no need
I stare nervously at my feet
I looked down and saw you there
holding onto your knees

Just sit next to me for now
I’ll get up in a moment or two
This is when you should tell me that
you don’t want to be here at all.
