i never asked you to wake me up at 3 in the morning to remind me that i’m beautiful,
i never asked you to send me paragraphs that told me how i made your life meaningful.
i never asked you to show me your phone or give up all your passwords,
i only asked you to keep pushing forward and stop moving backwards.
i never asked you to be one those cliche boys,
i never asked you to show me off like a brand new toy.
i never asked you to put me first before anything,
i only asked you to do everything you were promising.
in the end i didn’t have to ask, you did it all and more,
which made me think i fell in love with someone worth fighting for.
but how wrong i was to think that way,
it was only days before you left that you decided your love wouldn’t stay.
and then the world became so tiring,
and all i could do was wait.
how long ive missed wanting ,
to be alive, to be awake.
