Selfish

Selfish

you awakened my love
with no intention of loving me
you told me you love me
while you couldn’t stand me

you nurtured my calls
with no intention of answering
you told me we will have a bright future
while you just longed to taste me

you told me i shined like the Sun
that i brightened up your life
while you just wanted to feel it
on your dark, dry skin

you said you understood me
meanwhile you were just friends with my body
you said you felt my soul
while you were just best friends with my female organs

i trusted you: “10 fingers”,you lied
you barely gave me 1
I stepped back, moved away, moved out
because you were selfish
