I know it’s just the exhaustion
parts of me
most of me - just hanging by a thin
I might drop.
I know it’s irrational
parts of you that I believe exist
feelings that I want reciprocated
listen, I don’t need it all. I don’t need much.
just some time, a second or more of laughter, touch. Just moments —
they’re kept from me. You’re kept from me
I know it’s pointless
to fight that.
