No Return...

I have dried the tears of others

Even when they've caused my own

I have loyally kept them company

Whilst they've let me walk alone

I have listened to their heartaches

When they've had no ear for mine

I have moved my world to suit them

Yet been denied their time

I have taken on their worries

Despite mine weighing me down

I have handed them a lifeline

As they've stood by and watched me drown

I have respected their opinions

They've held mine with disregard

Why do I strive to make their lives easier

Whilst they delight in making mine hard?

  1. I'm the opposite, sorry to say. Don't give much of a damn about most folk, and don't care what they think of me! There are a few exceptions 😊💋 Beautifully written, gargle!!!

  2. Certainly no need to apologise, Hap! Your way of dealing with people like this is by far the more fitting and one I intend to invest in. Thanks my pal for continuing to read my stuff...((hugs)) xx
