If He Really Loved Me, He Would Subscribe to This Blog

My husband knows I write these poems

but he never reads them.

Maybe he thinks he knows

all he needs to know about me.

Maybe he thinks

that these poems

come from a place

I’d rather keep to myself.

Maybe he sees it

as an exercise in vanity.

Maybe he just doesn’t care.

Maybe he is afraid.

Maybe I just

take up too much of his time

and mind

and heart

as it is.
