Poetry

Positive ignorance

positive

you
share your
dark demons
reluctantly,
hesitant,
courageously scared

they
share advice:
think positive
smile
pray
choose happiness

you
smile, nod
rebuild walls;
withdraw
surrender
to loneliness

they
feel pleased
for helping;
ignorant,
apathetic
to inner despair

you
crave connection,
warm hugs,
empathy,
understanding,
a listening ear

    Oh yes. Often people just say words and think that they are helping but often you need a patient, understanding ear.
