You Should Realize By Now - Poem by Elaine Hofer

you should know by now
how fragile I am.
you should know
I’m sick of feeling forgotten
in this dark lonely corner.
I’m sick of waiting
by the phone when you say
you’ll call.
I’m sick of feeling insignificant
and wondering if you’ll
fathom a second to
remember you asked me to come.
And I said yes,
so I got up early and got ready.
But come an hour and a half
later you’re no where in sight!
I wonder if you forgot,
something happened,
or if you just don’t give a damn.
I’m sick of feeling like
a buzzing bee, as if I bother you
instead of feeling
like your friend.
You say you need me one second
and the next you
forget I’m alive.
you won’t have to worry anymore.
Because I’m done!
With you and everything!

Did you really think
I’d wait around forever
by the phone like
the lapdog you seem to
see me as?
Well this puppy realized
without kindness you
have no family
and without friendship you
have no friends!
