Shut Up

Written by: Melissa Gregg

Just listen to me
FOR ONCE
I’ll tell you
EVERYTHING
You want to hear
Need to know
Pretend to care about

But you won’t
Like always...
You never do
What I 
NEED
you to do!
BEG
Of you..please

Just SHUT UP
Please

And you ask
AGAIN
Why it is I 
CRY
Because you already
FORGOT
But you really do
CARE

Don’t you…?

The cycle spins
This wheel of compassion
Less the compassion part

I cry
You pretend
to 
listen
...
care
...
love
...
Unconditionally, with
conditions
