Is Misery Infectious? - Poem by samuel munachim

You do not love me
Because I am a nobody
Yet my heart is full of emotion
I can love greatly
And my affection can fill you

Yes, I am a nobody
And you are quick to remind me
I am poor and destitute
Both my parents are dead -
But I did not kill them myself,
My destiny did

So you are afraid
My temperance tries you
You scamper away to the
Security of your sheltering heart
Closed against me
Fastened with fear

I can love you
Truly feel deeply about you
If you let me, help me;
But you fear my fate;
Is misery infectious?
Because you will not go near
The diseased fellow, you will
Not come near me too.
