i took
the half empty glass
of my
soul
and held it out to you
poured it into your lap
when all i wanted to do was
hide

but then i looked up
and realized that maybe
it was not as
important
as i thought
because you were turned away
and didn’t even feel it
spill onto you

maybe it was
only tears,
only water
after all

This poem really touches deep. I know how the narrator feels. When you give someone everything and you still can't help them...I love this.

I like the pesimistic mood of the relationship in your poem. Kudos to Sarah W.
