Right corner of my eye

There goes the lighting, the purple, striking

There goes the light

Of my life

Tragically, I never thought she’d be with me

Because I never thought I could last long

With someone not named myself, I’m all

I’ve ever had, and she, she’s had friends

Take my family away from me and all I’ve got

Is pens, poems, and a twisted sense of self

Blaming myself for wrongs not my own

And the world for all of mine

But you…we weren’t a problem of mine

Or the world’s creation

Just, Times

I tried to make myself a better guy for you

But I already was

You tried to bring yourself closer to me

But you already were

I just needed to shut up and listen


One thought on “Listening

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
