If you still cared

October 28, 2009

You could forget my letters

at home for a week

When I write to you

when I cannot speak

You could dance with him

though you know you shouldn’t

And though you know

I wish you wouldn’t

You could leave me with

but one aloof wave

While delivering unto others

a delighted embrace

You could miss my gifts

with swift dismissal

And respond to my spark

with a listless fizzle

But

If I knew you still cared

I’d be alright.

*

If I knew you cared

I would sleep

at night.
