In the time it took for you,
to call me back,
after you said you would.
I had space to pretend to be ok about it.
And in the time it took,
for you to text me back,
I had had to figure out, what to do without it.
In the time it took for ticks to turn blue,
I had to learn not to count on you,
And in aaaaall the time it took,
At your own convenience…
Be there for me,
Support, love and be companion to me…
why I thought
I needed you,
in the first place.
