Fallen On Deaf Ears - Poem by Warren Augustus de Guzman

You only dream of me when I am in the same room as you.
But when you are gone I dream of you constantly
I let you invade my intimacies, my secrecies, my privacies
But you do not wish to know me as I wish to know you.

You only wish to dream of me. I wish to know you.

You only love me when I am inside your warmth.
But when we sever I love you constantly
I let you burn my mind, my passion, my desire
But you do not wish to keep me as I wish to keep you

You only wish to love me. I wish to keep you.

You only crave me when I am on your side.
But when you disagree I crave you constantly
I let you bash my dreams, my thoughts, my religion
But you do not wish serve me as I wish to serve you

You only wish to crave me. I wish to serve you.

You only call for me when I am convenient.
But when you prove cumbersome I call for you constantly
I let you weigh down my life, my heart, my soul
But you do not wish to care for me as I wish to care for you

You only wish to call on me. I wish to care for you.
