A Voice Crying in the WordPress

Like many of my fellow human beings,
I must acknowledge that I often feel
unacknowledged.

Supposedly,
blogging helps.
I’m told it “gives me a voice.”

Really, though,
it only makes things worse.

Before The Blog,
if I felt unacknowledged,
it was only by the select few within earshot:
the ones–you know them–
who always tell me how much they’ve missed me,
it’s been such a long time…
even though they have phones, cars, and feet…

as if somehow I were completely beyond their reach

But now,
Now
I feel unacknowledged by complete strangers
How’s that for irony?
