Your breathing is shallow. You drift in and out of consciousness,
Asking me to scratch your back.
But today is different
We fought earlier.
The drive to my house was filed with,
Music explaining my emotions,
Better than I ever could,
Your breath, Sighs, And text tones.
After the drive,
We fell back into our rhythm.
Laughing and making jokes.
Then you said something.
It sparked something inside me.
It’s the one phrase that makes me sweat.
“ I don’t care”
You say it with no effort.
You don’t care about what?
That’s what my brain always assumes first.
Do I really matter?
Or am I just another piece of ass.
It angers you when I say things like that. But I wouldn’t question it if you just showed me…
Show me you care!
Show me I matter!
Then! And only then!
Will I trust with no bounds.
