Sometimes when you open up
A person doesn’t respond
(and they certainly don’t open up to you)
And you feel exposed
And at least a little hurt.
Sometimes when a person opens up to you
You don’t respond
(and you have no idea what to say)
And you don’t know what to do
And you can tell
That not saying anything hurt.
10 thoughts on “It Is Hard To Remember”
Ohhh good one.
I am sure you know I can’t respond with, “correct,” even if I wanted to. I hope you are well. A pleasure as always.
So very true!!
I pray that I would remember it more myself.
In life when you have been hurt by a lot of people,
it becomes hard to give away your trust easily.
You become more cynical about people’s intention,
that is also the time you feel lonely. What an irony!
I can relate to this one on different levels. Different types of relationships require different kinds of interaction, and this poem covers it all.
It is good to hear someone can relate.
This is true.
