Good Girlfriend

Good Girlfriend

A Poem by kayla

At times like this

I feel the most alone.

I wish I didn't have to

second-guess myself,

but wishes don't come true.

I haven't heard from you

in a day and a half now,

and there's no excuse.

I refuse to sit and wonder

if you're dead or alive,

only to have you pop back up

a few days from now,

telling stories of "busy"

and "I'm sorry" and "next time...",

but I know you don't mean it,

because if you meant it

you wouldn't do it again.

So I'm sitting here,

tears in my eyes, wondering,

what will the excuse be this time?

Random road trip?

Sudden DJ work?

Phone broke?

You didn't get my texts?

And I'm wondering,

is it worth it?

Was it ever worth it?

There's so many other

fish in the sea,

but I'm sitting here,

devoting myself to you,

you, who hasn't texted me back,

you, who comes up with excuses.

Just yesterday

a nice man asked me out on a date,

and I said, "No, I have a boyfriend,

even if said boyfriend

hasn't texted me or talked to me

all day".

This other man is nice.

He seems to give a s**t

a lot more than you do.

But I'll be the "good girlfriend"

and just sit here

with tears in my eyes,

waiting for the text

that will revive my heart.

I felt the "fish in the sea" part was a bit cliche.

You shouldn't have to put up with neglect to be a "good girlfriend". Though I've been there before, I know it can be difficult deciding how much is worth putting up with. Nice work.

Whoa I know how much that totally sucks. Well I like that you put this feeling into witing that accurately relates it. Not so easy, but mission accomplished.
