The Song Has Been Sung

You say that you want me but I don't believe as I sit in your silence uncovering me over thinking that you would even seldom think   my tumultuous waters were worth a small drink      I'm busted and broken and all sorts of wrong   living a sentence of the same fateful song   I've stolen and shaken and I'm truly mistaken   fearful of losing of what's been foresaken       Not worthy of much except this hand that's been dealt   where feelings were erected but are no longer felt   It's strange but not strange, as life leaves me behind   with two swollen eyes and a congenial mind       Always adapting, acceptingly backing   to a man, not attacking   this song has been sung and sung and sung

Happy dad day Tim. I hope your kids make the day special for you. I hope the poem is fiction although as a good poet you made it feel real.

I already gave up. No more "singing" for me. I guess it just wasn't meant to be. I really like how you wrote this one, Tim. Have a wonderful Father's Day weekend:)

Oh wow Tim. I can feel tiredness in this from long term efforts, issues and survival. Well written! Hope you are having a nice day. :)
