See, Saw - Poem by Dan Brown

I’m talking quietly. And I can’t make you see
my side. You’re shouting, screaming, you saw
my ignorance.

I’m talking firmly. But I see
I’m not getting through. You saw
only my arrogance.

I’m holding my tongue. I see
no point in firing insults. But you saw
fit to gun me down.

I’m trying diplomacy. You saw
An all-out attack. I see
both sides, yet in the middle I drown.

I’m crying. You saw
weakness. When you see
that, you exploit it.

You’re slicing through my heart, like a saw,
Cutting, biting, gnawing at everything you see
standing in front of you.

You turn to violence, the only way you can see
to end the conflict. I only saw
you pushing me out that door.

    Now im going to cry. The bitterness of the poem mixed in with the neverending pain of life and difficulties in the strife. Great poem and i love the words and rythym and system you used its just great.
