A Stone

Maybe I am like a stone.
When I am stepped on
I remain silent.
That could mean
I am strong.
You want more, and more, and more.
Always wanting, never thanking.
For reasons unknown,
I never turn you down,
never say, "This is too much.",
never leave you hanging when you need me.
I'd love a return favor.

Something.

Anything.

You tend to leave me
when I need you the most.
When I need to hear your voice...

Silence.

And slowly my heart breaks
like a stone.
