100 Times

100 Times 


There is a time for anger
And there is a time to put anger aside

In these strange days
With so much fear and unsuredness 
I reached out to you
Because of all people in the world
I needed to know 
That you were ok

And I needed you to know
That no matter what had been said
Regardless of anything that had been done
My foremost thought 
Was of you

I broke my silence
To speak
Because you mean more to me
Than my pride

All I wanted was for you 
To say something
To reassure me 
That you were still here 

I needed to know
In times of trouble
I could still count on you
That we could come together again
And be there for one another

But you didn’t say anything
Not a single word
And that message 
Was resounding

You could have made things
100 times better
Instead you made them
100 times worse

  1. Wow!! Cannot believe the coincidence. I reached out and believed there would be a response ... nothing. I was a fool to try.

    1. Feeling very much like a fool myself. But at least we tried, and that's not nothing. Thank you for your comment. I wasn't sure how this one would go over and I'm so glad to know that the feeling was shared, even if the feeling was hurt. I feel better knowing that I'm not the only one.

  2. That is so sad. :( I like the part about "you mean more to me than my pride." It hurts when it's not reciprocated.
