no. 24 - Tell Me How (poem)

you said it's simple
will be undemanding
why did it feel like a ripple?
painstakingly, engulfing.


aiming for perfection
notwithstanding that temper
for at least a little gratification
even through softest whisper/murmur.


granted a scream
of ringing disapproval
of shattering dream
you are so medieval


you were not there
the moment i started
you were always somewhere
felt unconnected


tell me where i went wrong
for i am bemused
it's been so long
i have been fused


if you can't keep up, let me go
while you're still blind, at least for now
but if you want to keep the show
better let me know and tell me how.
