At some point
Your requests became demands
And the choice
No longer felt like mine

We became one-sided
What you want
What you need
What you desire

And when I asked for something
One thing I wanted
Just for me
It was met with rebuke and derision

Tit for tat, this for that
Except there's no reciprocation
For you always come first
And it drains me

I have nothing left
Nothing left to give you
And sadder still is that
I no longer want anything at all

  1. One of the most appreciated questions .... tell me, what do you need?

  2. Disappointment is a heartbreaking emotion. And indifference is even worse. Especially after one has loved. This is a difficult one. And so full of reality.

    1. Thank you. It certainly put a different perspective on things when you ask for something small and even that is too much.
