Talk - Poem by Dipali Unadkat

If everyone could talk to everyone,
Sort out our pointless misunderstandings,
Relationships would be so perfect.

I really want to talk to you and be open!
But I can’t.
You always get to defensive.
You’re always in denial.

I want to talk to you, but I can’t.
You’re too judegmental
You’re not open to another’s perspective.

I want to talk to you but I can’t.
You’re too unforgiving and intolerant
Your responses are always negative.

I want to talk to you, but I can’t.
You’re not able to be in my shoes.
You’re too practical.

I want to talk to you but I can’t.
You’re not a fan of discussions.
And I’m afraid you’ll walk away again.

Those are all the important people in my life.
I can’t talk to any of them.
And those I do talk to,
Aren’t always going to be there,
Concede continuously,
Advise incorrectly
Or, well, I don’t want to talk to.
That is life’s irony.
But really, all I just want to do is talk.
