I swear, I’m trying

I seem to be able to hold your attention,
The way
An introvert
holds a conversation:
Pathetically,
But I swear I’m trying.

I seem to talk to you,
The way,
I suppose,
I would ice-skate:
Clumsily,
But I swear I’m trying.

I seem to bother you,
The way
A fly might:
Unintentionally,
And I wish I knew why.
