Overly Sensitive - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Even though they have been among many,
Who have satisfied their thoughtlessness...
By a blaming of others,
For decisions they have made.
They will claim with an innocence,
Displayed to fake on a straight face...
How it was someone else,
Who made suggestions to recommend...
They did not take or listen to them,
But can be held accountable and accused...
With this done to validate their own mistakes.

And running to be seen giving them empathy,
Are those who know they deceive and lie.
But show they do with eyes to roll and despise,
The ones who have been shown with it known...
To have been shamed, framed and defamed.
With a doing to them to then criticize...
Their ability to move on with their lives to ignore,
An attempt with intentions to assassinate...
Their dignities and maintained identities.

'I don't believe how overly sensitive they are.
They act as if they were the first you attempted,
To have their lives ruined.'

~I know.
And not one word of apology to me,
Have they given.
Everyone else accepts,
What I've done to do.~

'It's okay.
It's okay.
There will be others.
Now you dry those tears.
We are here for you.
We understand what they've put you through.'

~You do? ~

'Of course.
You suffer from kept childhood dysfunctions.
And we know how horrible,
Reality for you has been.
Sssshhh...
It's okay.
It's okay.
There will be others.
Now you dry those tears.
We are here for you.
We understand what they've put you through.'
