Eavesdrop (day 6)

I wish you would eavesdrop through a gap in the fence
I wish you had known everything
I never told you
Maybe that’s why I didn’t try too hard
to hide it


I wish you cared enough to tell me I was wrong
when you heard me pour out the mess in my head


I found out
everything about you
except the things that mattered


and when I threw out
everything about you
it wouldn’t have been hard
for you to eavesdrop,
which just shows me
how much you didn’t want to try.

Thanks! you actually made

Thanks! you actually made this challenge at the perfect time, so many words on that list inspire me right now after the end of a harsh relationship that made my brain kind of explode with stuff. I love this idea and I'm glad I'm at a point where I can participate in it better :)
