    dotsHow much for love?dots
    -------------------------------------------


    Every daunting day
    Monday thru Friday
    like all the rest,
    I go to work.
    And there I sit and count
    the hours, the minutes, the seconds..
    Awaiting the chance of your presence once more.
    At the strike of 4,
    I'm out the door
    My weary heart rushes home to
    a sullen look on your face.
    My anticipation fades
    into your misery,
    but my hopeful heart awaits.
    It begs out through my eyes.
    That you cannot ignore.
    But still yet,
    I fix your tea
    graciously.
    No request needed.
    I know exactly how you like it,
    a teaspoon of sugar
    and a dash of
    Regret
    Or is it
    Forget?
    Ah yes.
    You gulp it down quicker
    than my own bitter pill
    I suck on slowly and gently.
    I'd offer you some
    But you always say no.
    I try once more to embrace you
    To take your scents
    Within my senses.
    Annoyed by my gesture,
    I'm sure.
    You groan "I'm tired"
    As you've done every night before.
    Within seconds, you snore.
    And I sit there staring in awe,
    Wondering,
    when did I become a chore?
    Or
    I wonder how much energy
    it takes
    to love me?
    I've tried each day
    a little bit more
    I've withered you down
    to nothing
    expected.
    I cook and I clean
    I work and I smile
    I try all the while
    To appease you.
    To make yours days easier
    to accept me.
    What I ask in return,
    I promise its small,
    is a bit, a slice, a crumb even
    of affection from you.
    So tell me please
    how much will it take?
    Is my heart not enough
    to buy an ounce of love?
    How about a teaspoon?

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
