Sonnet – When
When you asked me for help, but I said no.
When you wanted to go, but chose to stay.
When I cried so hard my eyes would seem grey.
When I wanted, but didn’t believe it so.
When my heart was full but only of woe.
When I chose to work where you would have played.
When you blindly accused that I had strayed.
When you told me that it was time to go.
When I borrowed time, you charged interest.
When you shout words, that could have been spoken.
When you showed off, you were not impressed.
When tired and I could not be woken.
When even I did not know what was true,
these are the things I would say yes to.
Forever Distracted by Life
