to put you first

it was over a year ago 
when our love became 
fractured doubts
of our situation
i am accepting 

i am weary with 
trying to alter 
the course of our destiny 

what is it, exactly
between us 
that causes pain when we part 

my habits in bent to your schedule 

why, oh why 
must my priorities change 


maybe it is time to 
let go 
it doesn’t seem to do me any good 
to put you first 

to put your needs before mine 

especially when 
it is late - 
and i am alone 

you are unavailable 

but then 
it is my bed 
to prepare 
lie in 
and reminisce.
