It’s Almost That Time

My atypical mind

Serves as your food

You binge freely

Sucking out every last morsel

Leaving nothing for me.

 

I cry before I hit empty

Please, please save some for me

You pay no mind

And push beyond my reservoir

There’s not one drop left.

 

While I hang

By a fragile cord

You watch me sway

And poke around for more

My wound releases its final tear.

 

You stand there perplexed

How can it be

I was always so nurturing

Now I’m useless

Now I’m a taker.

 

I drag my shell

To a place where it can sleep

You follow me there

And peek inside

Calling for more.

 

I beg you

To let me be

You cry rejection

I can only hear my own voice say

It’s almost that time

Again.
