A Living Death

Updated: Dec 17, 2020

You call and I drop everything for you

Leaving it all behind for just a second of your attention

Craving to see myself within the reflection of your browns

Pretending that friendship is the only reason I wait for your call

I fight easy the tears for it is so much bigger than fear for me

If you asked I would burn the flesh right off my bones

To receive the attention I yearn daily for

Want you to save me from the inordinate demands of life

But by design you only offer me moments in your time

Slowly I die without your love

And become non-existent to everything that is
