No More Games, Please 

You know what?
Fuck this

I’m not gonna keep sitting around
Moping
Waiting

You want to talk to me?
Fine, let’s talk

You wanna ignore me?
I’m done sitting around waiting
For a non-existent conversation
To happen

Because apparently
We’ve said all there is to say

All that remains are
I love you’s
Status updates
Shallow platitudes
And sexual forays

Well, I’m sorry sir
That’s just not enough
For this woman

You can’t put a spell on me
Steal my heart
Upend my life

Say all the right things
And then abandon me

Nope
I won’t play that game
Been there, done that

I’ll wait a little longer
But it won’t be forever

I can’t be a back-burner girl
Either you’re with me
Or not

We’ve all got issues
Sure
But I won’t let my heart
Be crushed again

I’m putting up some walls
Just so you know
Gotta protect me

I’ll keep them small for now
But I might keep adding on
Depending
On you

You want me?
Well then work for me
I’m not free
Maybe not even cheap

But I am worth it

      1. Yeah. It’s actually more an issue of time than money. Which annoys me because I used to be one of those people who would just do whatever whenever the notion struck me. Not having the time is never an excuse I would have made. Apparently I have become a lame boring ass responsible adult. Shit.

      1. It doesn’t matter. What matters is what you think. I know this is INCREDIBLY clichéd but that’s the simple truth, Tara.
        You need to love yourself more. I struggle with that too so I can empathize with you.
        So best of luck to the two of us I guess ❤

    1. I haven’t. You’re right, though, I should. I’ve been in a very low place, hating my writings; everything I read of mine or write is just utter shit. I want to make sure I submit something worth their time & energy.
