TALES OF WOE
(5/21/17)

you tell
of your
sufferings

real

imagined

they are
continual

endless

some
magically
disappear

but new ones
spring quickly
from your tongue

from your
fingers

to replace
them

you seem
to want
pity

sympathy

in order
to bring
others close

however

stories
such as these
usually lead
to isolation

who wants
to be around
all
of that grief?

still

we wish
you well

from
a distance
