Since it's the done thing…

Master, they say that when I seem
To be in speech with you,
Since you make no replies, it’s all a dream
–One talker aping two.
They are half right, but not as they
Imagine; rather I
Seek in myself the things I meant to say,
and lo! the wells are dry.
Then, seeing me empty, you forsake
The listener’s role, and through
My dead lips breathe and into utterance wake
The thoughts I never knew.
And thus you neither need reply
nor can; thus, while we seem
Two talking, thou art One forever, and I
No dreamer, but thy dream.
C.S. Lewis
