Not What I Needed


I’m taking time for myself
Like you took me for granted,
Words were wasted on the ears you covered,
Scared to hear something that would make you change,
Terrified of stepping out of that familiar
Hole you dug yourself,

You let me talk my voice dry
While you said not a word,
Caring not about what I spoke,
More focused on the nicotine
With which you flooded your brain,

No wonder I haven't seen you smile in weeks,
When your dopamine
Depends entirely on
What you inhale between your lips,

I reached out to you and was met with silence,
Now I know it is easier to cry alone,
If I kept my mouth shut
We would sound like the wind passing by
And with the breeze I release you
To be just another passerby
