I Lost a Follower, a Poem
I've lost a follower.
Alas, now what have I said?
So very like me, to push people away,
When all I want is to be appreciated for who I wish I was.
Why, though, did the follower leave me?
I'm not lonely, just curious.
After all, I've said so many things
That could push people away,
I can't possibly be expected to guess
Which sharp remark pricked this follower's heart?
