You could have warned me
You could have honestly told me
I think I deserved that much
I deserved to be informed
That this is what you meant when you said
You want me

See,
I was not ‘available’
I was waiting
I was waiting for the person who would invest time into getting to know me just as I have invested time into getting to know you
I was waiting for the person who would pursue me
The person who would make me a priority in his life
So you should have told me…

I am not needy
I had no voids for you to fill
Yet you asked and I made room in my heart for you
But then you decide when you want to be there
You come and go as you please
You could have at least told me that you were looking to rent but not to buy

I have a life
Yet I make an effort to involve you in it
Albeit it worked excellently before you
You could have told me that this is not what you wanted
You could have told me to care within boundaries
So that when you going through it and you push me away it wouldn’t hurt so much…
You should have told me hey!

But then,
I can’t complain
You mos can’t deal with complaints…
I will rather keep it all in
And just before I can’t take it anymore
I will pour it out in a poem
I guess I also should have told you
And if you choose to leave,
It was nice knowing you!
