Obvious Allusions To You And Me Ommited

You know stuff that makes you sad?
Like genuinely sad?

Like when someone says I love you on the phone
but stops because the other person hung up?

Or like when a kid comes from school and no one is home
And his parents don’t come home until late at night
And he learns to cope with solitude?

Like when a guy brings a girl flowers
And dresses up in a nice suit
And he sees the girl making out with someone else?

Like a funeral for a pet?
Or a funeral for a grandparent?
Or a funeral for a son?

Like a bird stranded on the road
Because one of its wings is broken
Desperately trying to get to the sidewalk
So he can be safe?

Like the feeling you get
When nothing is going your way
And nobody ever talks to you about meaningful things?

Or how people can’t tell each other they’re beautiful
For fear of being rejected?

Like singing songs to a wall?
Like reading poems to a tree?
Like seeking warmth from the ground?

You know the stuff that makes you sad?
Like genuinely sad?
And you can’t even cry about it?
