July 31-August 1, 2019


I tried

once or twice

three times even

to discuss with you concerns

I had about a thing or two


I dont do that anymore


and if (big “if”, that)

you were to ask me why

I could only give this

as my answer:


“What concerns me

didnt seem to concern you


What concerns me more

is that what I said didnt concern you


What concerns me even more

is that you weren't concerned that I said it”


and so I dont try anymore


why should I let you be adding

to the burden I already have

why even speak of my concerns

to he who seems unconcerned

and adds to my burden, pain


I Tried
