Too late now

Did you really need to see
Scars on his body to believe?

Did he really have to collapse
For you to finally notice?

Why couldn’t you see
The sadness in his eyes?

Why didn’t you hear
The pleas in his voice?

Did you even mean it
When you said you understood?

He gave you everything you wanted
So you would give him some of what he needed

                   – does that make him selfish?
