Do you hear me?
Do you get me?
Feel the urgency,
Do I resonate in your mind?
Does understanding flood your thoughts?
I hope, I wish.
Or will you always back away?
Hide your feelings and your thoughts,
Letting go, more and more.
Inch by inch, problem by problem.
Can’t you hear that I need you?
I want you.
Lost now in anger, resentment, and fear.
Yours and Mine.
Where’s the connection between us now?
Was there ever one, really?
Can you feel me?
No, I don’t think you can.

Life doing its unintentional thing can hurt.
I weep, pull myself up and move on.
People’s forced recklessness do harm.

Hoping it gets better.
Reality churns out a present of mediocre.
It’s not getting better.
Feeling panic and sadness, a demise is imminent.
It must get better!

Now, get better. I’ll
Over and over, repeated re-injury of the senses.
It’s what we had.
Dressed in our despair, bonded by pain.
It’s what we shared.
We twisted and contorted, struggled further to gain control.
It’s how we fought.
Every prick of the conscience drained another abscess.
It’s how we learned.
Giving up was not an option.
It’s how we lived.
The fire in you warms me.
My coolness keeps you from burning to a crisp.

But my needs are subject to your approval.
Navigating your ego is treacherous.
Peace and quiet, no conflict!
There’s no room for mine.
