Little Significance

I never thought these little things
could annoy me in such a way
that I am jealously wishing once again
my eyes were skin-melting laser beams

Is it enough to just sit here and simmer
like a stew wishing it could boil?
or can I get your attention by throwing a glass
at your self righteous face?

If it shatters don't blame me
your weeping cuts would only remind me
of all our smashed aspirations
and any motivation to create new dreams

But I guess you stopped caring a long time ago
all my earnest pleading and soft words
are methodically swept aside
with a cold and passionless touch

That's ok
guess in the end it meant nothing
I should be pretty pleased with myself actually
I saw this coming a long way off
and you know I always like to be right
