YOU NEVER CALL
(8/16/19)


you never
write

you never
visit

they
chastise
me

when I
do call

when I
do write

when I
do visit

yet
I never
hear from
them
unless I
initiate contact

their actions
say that they
don't
want to
see me

but they seem
to truly
lament
my absence

they
do not like
being
alone

still
they will
not
reach out

they
do not
seem to realize
that I
am alone
as well

even
more so
than they

only
much

less

lonely
