The Evidence of Calmness

You'll try and play down 
what you think he thinks you mean to him,
but you know he needs you, 
as you him, 
because you have watched him 
when he didn't know you were watching
and have have felt the tension unspool around him 
when he sees you.
Whoever you are,
and wherever you were,
and whatever it was 
you did it with -
the result is enough to shock a passerby 
from the unmistakable,
uncensored evidence
of calmness in his eye.
