it's getting exhausting
trying to
match my every move to your
personal schedule

it's tiring me out
having to
cancel my plans
in favor of yours

people ask me where
have you been?
my friends keep telling me
"you're not all here
these day"

I stare ahead
with a distant look
not comprehending
what they're saying

the one thing I
know for certain is

it is exhausting having to
bow to your
every need
