Not Yours - Poem by Anna Dietze

You told me that the necklace means it all
That you can’t say the words but the feeling will always be there
What about now?
When a tragedy like this happens
All you can do is think about yourself
Your accident
What about my accident?
It could have/should have been worse
But does that matter to you?
Probably not
Or at least it doesn’t seem like it
You didn’t even call to see if I was ok
You called one of my friends instead
Sometimes I wish I took G’s place
That he was here and I wasn’t
I feel this way because of you
This is my reality
Not yours
My life, not yours
My feelings, not yours
But somehow, you still don’t understand
