you say
i smile,
painfully, and tell you
don’t worry, my love
no matter how many parts of me you shatter,
i’ll still be waiting here like a fool
just as i promised i would
years ago.

i’m still waiting for you to do the same.
I shouldn’t have to need you. I shouldn’t want to. I want you to need me. why can’t you do that? after all this time, yet you’ve made it clear you don’t want me. even though I still wait here for you.
