Short Changed

If I make myself feel nothing

It doesn’t mean I never felt

I think I am on the border

Of being withholding


Is all that I have

It keeps me from being angry

It makes the truths that I know

Less hurtful to me

Something getting in the way

Love has not died

I see it in your eyes

In the hesitation of actions

That are needed to be made

You are afraid to cause pain

Even after all that was done to you

You can’t do the things

You know you need to do

I don’t have it all

But I will wait


If that is what it takes
