I show you

Sick of being
disrespected.

Sick of being
unappreciated.

I don't need
the constant
barrage
of your stupid
ignorate
absence of care.

I've got my own baggage,
my own demons
and I don't have room
to carry yours as well.

I can stand by you
I can be there for you
I can support you
But you can't turn on me
and then wonder why
I take a step away from you.

Would one fucking compliment be too much to ask?

Would one fucking unprompted "thank you" be completely out of the question?

Would one fucking sincere apology be just too much against the grain of your being?

Take responsibility
without turning it into
a fucking pity party.

Stand up
and accept when you are wrong.

Be honest
with yourself and with those around you.

All I ask
is that you just
show me the respect
that I show you.
