You Don't Think

Did you ever think

That maybe I don't spend time with you

Because during every moment spent with you, 

Every aspect of my life is scrutinised? 


Did you ever think 

That the differences you saw 

Weren't imperfections or defects

But gifts and blessings in the eyes of others?


Did you ever think

About how much it hurt to hear you spout off about your eldest and youngest 

But never

Your middle?


Did you ever think

That I always argue

Because you built me up to alway defend myself 

From your verbal attacks?


Did you ever think 

That it was your fault?

That ANYTHING was your fault? 

Did you? 

Well, that's just like you!

You don't think.
