May 3~12, 2013


you caused me untold harm

by your careless complaint

that I had been remiss

then asking that I praise

what you and yours were not

resting your burden light

on shoulders not your own

as though care transferred

were sufficient to heal

and my faltering labours

replace the lack of yours

with no word either way

for what was done to please

whether you saw my words

cared that I spoke for you

or were aware the pain

your self concern has caused

do you not know that I

feel, bleed and weep as you


You Caused Me Untold Harm
