Objection overruled

I tried to ask, to know
the reason why we don’t talk now
aren’t we same for whom the day seemed so short then
now why even minutes seem so long as hours
where has gone all those fresh moments and those pleasant talks
why we have given silence a room
if it’s something wrong that I did
a mistake, a folly or a cruelty that I committed
I turn to you and beg
to let me know of my sin
hear me, listen to me, speak to me at least once
in so many years you never replied
like you never heard me
an objection over ruled
you didn’t bother to listen to me
you didn’t bother to answer me
you didn’t bother to see me

Please don’t just walk by pretending to not answer
my vital questions
don’t just give me a feeling as if
my objection is overruled
don’t just give me perception as if
my objection is dismissed
for if you allow me I am willing to make any correction you want
ready to change my sails to a destination you choose
hear me, listen to me, speak to me at least once
in so many years you never replied
like you never heard me
an objection over ruled
you didn’t bother to listen to me
you didn’t bother to answer me
you didn’t bother to see me
