Why is it with derision that you accuse me
Of seeking out your company in loneliness and boredom
Is it not only right to seek friends in times of aloneness
To elevate each other’s moods through play and fun?
When have you ever felt lonely?
Not for over five years since you met your beau, fiancée, and spouse
You sneer at loneliness like you sneer at your immature self
And have painted over your human flaws with a fine-tipped brush
Choosing to believe the best in yourself
And to deny that belief in others
I will accept you as you are
But I know you will not accept me
