Tried to Know You Again | A Poem by G.S. Katz

you say you want the truth
but only if it’s your truth

tried to find a way to know you again
— too many years had passed

can’t talk about the weather
can’t talk about our jobs
can’t talk about our lovers
can’t talk about the mundane any longer

gave you friendship
gave you connection
gave you a reason to know me again
What did you give me ?

Truth when you were drunk
It’s not good enough….
