*what Makes You Cry? - Poem by Ted Sheridan

What makes you cry?
I pray it’s not always me
As you have convinced me many times
The real me
Would never try to hurt you

I know you are in pain
And probably hate me.
But you don’t hate me
As much as you miss me
Truth be known

I show more of a tendency
To abandon you to your locked closet
Of whore’s clothes and dildos….
You are predictably stronger
Than most souls
I encounter in the deafening mist of empty dreams

What makes you cry, when I’m not to blame?
