Even When You Hurt Me (Originally Untitled) – Written Saturday 1st April 2006 (Aged 31)

Even When You Hurt Me

even when you hurt me
you first concern
is for yourself
nobody else
no understanding
immediately the victim

even when you hurt me
the step to understanding
was a step too much
no comfort in your words
or in a touch
your first concern
is for yourself
