The Voice is back - 1. Don't Go There

Not a prompt but being I don't write poetry, not really, I needed to put it somewhere.

Don’t go there

 

I talk, but you don’t listen

Not till you have made my eyes glisten

With tears yet to shed

Heart heavy as lead

But you don’t care

So don’t go there

 

I do things for others

For fathers and mothers

For everyone under the sun

But for me nothing gets done

But you don’t care

So don’t go there

 

What makes me less?

Leaves me a mess

Full of stress

Dull and lifeless

But you don’t care

So don’t go there

I am not an author or poet, never claimed to be. Probably never will be, but once in a while the voices start and I have to do something to shut them up. This is the first in a long time that they would not leave me alone.

This is a good way to express and expel the frustration, Kitt. I think I've felt this way a time or two... or three. Well done.

It’s beautifully written, with an insistent rhythm. But I’m sad with its hurt and sense of injury.

Thanks Parker. I am not a wordsmith so was not sure about posting.  Stuff like this usually dies a slow death in the bottom drawer of my desk.

Overlooked, ignored, taken for granted ... not an author or a poet you say. Seems you found the words to express what you were feeling. I owe you a big warm hug when I see you next.
