Sometimes you hurt me

Sticks and stones and all that,
But childhood rhymes are no
Basis for relationships, none
Save the Golden Rule, so
When I raised my concerns
About how much I dislike it
When you relieve yourself
On me in the shower, I expected
That out of respect for me,
You’d stop, and now, after
Repeated conversations,
Multiple pleas, it continues, day
After day after day, until I don’t
Know how to trust you any more,
And you certainly can’t trust
Me at this point, I’ve been relieving
Myself in your cereal for weeks now.
