Daily Prompt: Retreat
I tried to be friendly,
I tried to show empathy,
But you only opened my deepest wounds;
And I had to retreat!
You say I am always talking,
You say you are always listening,
But it was you I was entertaining;
And again I had to retreat!
You never tried once to kill the silence,
You never tried once to make me laugh,
But I did not want to hurt you,
And I tried hard not to retreat.
I am sorry, I can not try any more,
I am sorry, I can not understand,
But I am most sorry I let you judge me,
And now, I am happy to retreat!
