*Message sent…*

A soft short ring,
A little light slowly blinking,
The screen flicks on,
The message in view.

You have always put everything aside,
Always helped,
Never asked for anything in return.

You gave up all your time to be there,
Never once did you reply with “I can’t”,
Or “I’m busy”,
Even though those were their replies whenever you’d ask.

But that’s enough…
You’ve spent enough time solving other people’s problems,
You’ve helped unravel their strings while watching yours get even more tangled.

It times you took a step back,
Paid attention to yourself,
And took some time off from being a human diary.

However you’re way too kind,
And just can’t help it.

As much as you try to take care of yourself,
As hard as you try to put yourself first.
Somehow it just doesn’t end up happening.

“Yes I’m free, how can I help?”
Sent.

  1. What sucks is that they don’t return the favor. Not that reciprocity is the reason we do what we do, but at the end of the day you just want to feel valued or needed by the people you’re willing to bleed for. It sucks when you’re a 3AM friend (the kind that answers the phone at 3AM to help a friend), but, as you said, gets shunned if you needed the same. I don’t need those kinds of friends, and they certainly don’t deserve me.
