I strummed the guitar

I felt the strings against my fingers

Putting all the emotion I could find into the chords I played

You were mesmerized

I was mesmerized by the sheer intensity in your eyes

An unspoken connection between these two objects

Little did you know that I didn't feel it

I never would

This unspoken connection wasn't there at all

You played it around in your head

You believed it

Unspoken connections are never real

They are never there

They're just make believe
