Written July 10, 2003..my eighth poem
Please Tell Me
Please tell me what else I should have done--
All I knew to do was run.
I didn't know what else to do---
I tried and tried to get through to you!
It seemed hopeless in every case--
I got so weary of running the race!
When I felt sad or lonely--I'd go and tell you,
But it only left me feeling bluer than blue!
I'd cry and you would ignore me--
Instead of being the friend I desperately need!
Sometimes you'd just get mad---
I guess it all was just old hat!
You've hurt me too--
Even though you don't know how!
Anyway, none of that really matters now.
You never made me feel I was good enough--
I could never understand why.
I think of all that has happened and I cry, cry, cry!
I'm always wrong--I'll never be right--
So why even bother with the fight?
