I TOLD YOU by Jerry Joel

I told you
What my mouth couldnt spew
Closely guarded secrets and sins
Of all of yesterday’s meetings
If only you knew how hard it was

I told you
About things only a part of me knew
Things only my left eye saw
And is still sore from what it saw
But I still told you

I told you
About the words they incessantly threw
Words shaped as arrows
From mouths shaped as bows
Though it hurt to remember, I still told you

I told you
Not once, not twice but each day as I grew
About all of my fears
Sometimes with a mixture of ink and tears
Other times with sweat, ink and a tinge of raw fury.

I told you
What no one ever knew
Because there was no one else to tell
And you never did yell
All you ever did was listen and listen and listen.

    Sometimes, there’s nothing quite like the non-judgmental “listening ear”! It’s all the shrink you need!
