Discarded apple core

You say you are just raw Which is why you have nothing to say But for me it’s just another indication Of neglect of me today I think I’m pretty valuable I think I have things to offer I think I’m extremely malleable So I don’t get what’s in your coffer Am I really so unworthy Unworthy of true love Will I be always thrown to the tatters The tatters of your buff I love you, I do love you But know this is my waste I’m wasting all this joy on you Because you brush past without haste What happens to people That they really don’t see your worth They discard you like an apple core Treat you with such mirth I know I’m very lovely I know I can love well But now I’m not coming out Of this cosy, comfortable shell

When my late wife felt like that, she played Roy Orbison's, "Crying" as he certainly sounded like someone who loved someone who did not love him . . . . .Aloha!
