Less Than I Expected - Poem by Elizabeth Walker

Every rain dropp falling like every hurtful word fell on my ears
Leaving me cold and wet outside with no one to dry these tears
I thought you were a shoulder to cry on a friend when I was in need
You were something special a whole different breed
I was mistaken I should have known you’re just a boy still living at home
I’m exhausted with your excuses or the lack there of
This once effortless relationship is now a painful push and shove
I feel bruised inside I can’t take your stare
I saw it yesterday you no longer care
Whatever my purpose was I suppose I’ve served
I hope you feel it was worth it and our time was deserved
I don’t regret a second a word or a glance
I just wish you’d find a way to give me a chance.
