Under-Appreciated - Poem by Marcquiese Burrell

Things were going just fine until a sudden issue arised
A pattern I've noticed and couldn't describe
This tore away at my heart, i couldn't deny
Am I not worth it, why do I even try?
The more I get close to you, the more you push me away
Distancing yourself and in the process, ignoring me.
Left me feeling frustrated and emotionally unfulfilled
but i realized, there could be a list of things
that has you behaving this way,
you could be tired, shy, busy or
it's difficult for you to get emotional.
who am I kidding? I can't use this as an excuse
when you literally hurt me day by day
ignoring something i have said or asked,
I want you to appreciate the fact that i care
enough to make things work and respect
that i'm trying to satisfy you the best way I can
Maybe you want to feel like in some way,
you're controlling the situation
by selectively choosing to respond to what you want
I won't tolerate this kind of disrespect
Sooner or later you will regret
All the things you've been doing to me
Will see me walking out the door permanently
I won't comeback
Even if you got down on your knees
and begged baby, please
Wished you knew how this is making me feel
I love you but it hurts and this pain is too real
Can't ignore it even if i tried
SOmetimes I want to just breakdown and cry
you leave me feeling unappreciated
Taking my kindess for weakness
what a big mistake
but you'll learn, if not soon
I'm done being misused
There's someone out there who'll cherish the day
I walked into their life
while you're left with the guilt
that you've lost, the best thing you've ever had
