I've got a lot of leeches in my life
And I don't know how long I can
Sustain them
Before they are taking even
What I need for myself

But I have a hard time
Saying no to any life
And even though I find their
Slimy bodies repugnant and
Their freeloading nature
Repulsive, I would feel bad
Removing them knowing
They are perfectly happy snuggled
Up to my armpit or thigh,
Existing because of me.

I guess I am a pushover
Or maybe that's just how
Loving anyone is supposed to feel
And no one ever tells you
That part.
