I didn't know

I didn't know

A Poem by Jay Ligda

This is a response. to Kat-Marie's poem, "i would've." Even though I do not know her or the details behind her poem I thought it needed an answer and this is what it brought up in me.


Sorry honey I did not know

Your voice it wasn’t strong enough
Or maybe you just spoke in tongue
A language that I did not know
Perhaps it was me and I didn’t hear
Even though you were crystal clear
And I could have stopped to listen
But my pride it had to interfere
Now my life is sad and done
And though I traveled far and near
I struggled alone with all I’ve done
Because of things I couldn’t hear
And as I pass to the other side
I sit back and wonder why
It just does not mean a thing
Because I your love was swept aside
