Artwork on the wall
I thought about it for hours, days, years
and I could only come to the conclusion,
"we don't work well together",
"we're not a match made in heaven".
I tried to make myself settle for what I have,
but something is constantly missing -
the artwork on the walls that I put up on my own,
all the bookshelves I wanted someone to build with me I did by myself,
the chair he sits on to play games,
everything that surrounds us I made with my own two hands.
He doesn't bother asking if I need help -
just lets me put up the artwork by myself.
Tonight when I want to be alone,
why should I keep someone like that
when all he ever did was not pay attention to what I really want?
The artwork on the wall is missing.
