Photo Challenge #297 – Talk to Me.




You could have changed you know

Been a better person

One to be proud of

If only you’d talked to me.

It wasn’t for want of trying, was it?

But you are so pig-headed

Stubborn and arrogant

Thought you didn’t need to listen

But it might have all turned out differently

If only you’d talked to me.

I could have saved you from the humdrum

Showed you your potential

Given you the freedom to explore

Well, within my confines, of course.

But it’s only a pipe dream

‘Cause you never talked to me.

Still today you turn away

When this topic rears its head

You say: “there is no point

When talking is only you

My opinion doesn’t matter

When I stop and talk with you.

You’ve re-written our history

Such that it favours you

Hardly surprising is it

That I refuse to talk with you.”
