I Matter Naught

slapdashmonuments

Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?


I don't get you. I don't get me.

I should give up, as you can see.

Thanks for the friendship; thanks a lot.

I'm here, where ev'ry day's too hot.

.

Don't follow me! Don't hold me back.

My kindness changes to attack.

Please save yourself while you still may

And live to see a better day.

.

I matter naught. I matter least.

I'll stagnate here till I'm deceased.

It's coming any moment. Quick!

Get saner friends who aren't so thick!

.

The years before you might reveal

The depth of all you made me feel.

I believe you matter and I certainly recognize some of the sentiments here.

Thank you so much. I'm sorry you can identify with some parts, though.

No need to apologize! I'm not some kind of omni-person with universal experience lol. My language tends to be as literal and precise to avoid being misunderstood. Unfortunately it failed me this time. Oh well, the path continues and I am better for it.
