Listen (Can you hear me?)

Every time there is a need I give myself to you
(without fail)
A pool to dip your pain in
Yet, I wonder who’s the fool.

An ear that’s at the ready;
listening intently when you talk
The angst that’s in my gut has now been pushed back to the rear
A phone vibrates, a child screams;
My place becomes quite clear.

Toss the dog (me) a bone and he’ll (I’ll) contentedly while the hours
Ignore him (me) and he’ll (I’ll) shrivel like a slowly dying flower.
Friendships are a two-way street; true I’d hope at best
How mundane it is to learn that some don’t stand up to the test.
