And That is Not Me

I told you I deserve

to be treated better,

to not have to beg

for love,

attention,

a conversation,

and your response

was a defense

of how you have

hundreds more people

texting your phone

and cannot remember

to respond to me

over the course of a week

and it was in that moment I realized

I will not compromise

my basic rights of love

for you,

for you

should find love

in someone

you can remember

to talk to,

to love,

or who is complacent

with your lack

of communication,

reciprocation,

care,

and that

is not

me
