Some People Seem at such a Loss – Written Monday 25th November 2019 (Aged 44)

Some People Seem at Such a Loss

why do some people lack compassion
or empathy
self awareness
some sensitivity
what does it mean
to show you value people
and on that idea, you are keen
it is a loss
a deficit
a debt from some trauma based cost
what happens,
to behave in such ways

why do some people lack compassion
or more to the point
an ability to connect
self awareness
conjoined to a loneliness?
when simple interaction
seems like the most complicated complicated
it is a loss
a wall wet with damp
and some unknown type of moss
some people seem at such a loss
