Attention Whore


I need to know that
I'm desired
by someone like you.


I won't beg you to love me,
though it's what
my heart yearns for.


I just want you to say that

I'm worth something..


a kiss,
a conversation,
what have you.


But you turned your face
and ignored my calls.


You left me in tears,
but when my mind sobered
I realized...


You did me a favor.


I crave attention
and will accept any
I can find.


I almost gave you my soul,
when I knew I would regret it.


You knew better than I
and for that,
I owe you my gratitude.
