You are prone to bouts of
self pity and defensive rhetoric
as you relate to me
the latest list of poor souls
who have somehow done you wrong.

I listen silently because I know
you want ears and not
thoughtful response
but the only common denominator
in your list of dastardly foes
is you.

It is said that misery
loves itself some company
but if you cannot
change perspective or accept
your fault in these feuds
perhaps one day you’ll find
that even misery stops taking your calls.
