Try

 

I try to connect

I really do

I say “Good morning”

and “How are you?”

and ask after your day

and all the other things

but to have a monosyllabic response

and an impassive, deafening silence

(or equally deafening autobiograph)

in return

is heartbreakingly painful

 

sometimes I just want to scream:

“Ive got a life too, you know,

and Id like to talk about it!”

 

I ask you

Ill ask anyone

how do you connect with something

that isnt really there

and has no concern for you

even when it is
