To Live With Less

I guess
that in the end,
I was just too much for you.
You asked for rain
and I gave you a flood.
You asked for sunshine
and I gave you a drought.
I never learned
how to be less
than what I was,
and the only thing
you could do
was to leave me
and to go back
to what you were comfortable with.

  1. Sounds like the narrator never learned to actively listen.
    Mistook the requested acts
    Ironically, the narrator assumes that he/she was too much for the recipient of his/her stated efforts, when in actuality the narrator’s biblically armaggadonic plague-like efforts, as vain and defense mechanism-like as they were, still were not enough for the one who asked for the sunshine and the rain, leaving both unfulfilled.
