Baggage Status - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Don't give me rockstar ego.
To drop your baggage status.
I have had it with you leaving that.
Take it back.
Don't unpack it here.

All you do is groan about a limelight.
Under which you have yet to take a stand.
You want to live the highlife day and night.
To have others believing,
You and I are 'friends with benefits'.
But benefits from you I don't get.

You don't pay rent but buy new shoes.
Then bring me mood and attitude.
To think your impressions made,
Addresses unpaid bills to pay.
With it assumed my wants and wishes,
Are to wash your filthy dishes.
While you eat then sleep at my expense.

Don't give me rockstar ego.
To drop your baggage status.
I have had it with you leaving that.
Take it back.
Don't unpack it here.

'Wassup?
Don't I keep looking good enough? '

Yeah, you do.
But it's time for you to find someone else,
Who will accept you just for impressions made.

'Some people will never appreciate talent.'

I do.
But the expense of your talent,
I can't afford anymore.
