"I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory"


I spent 

It all on

You

Every penny

Earned from poor

Family work

Working too hard

For something so sparce

I spent every bit

Of it on

You

Buying you whatever 

You could wish for

With mismatched

Quarters

Picked up 

Wherever I could find

Because you

You

You

You

Always wanted more

I used up

All of it on

You

You who was never

Satisfied

With just me

I lived

Breathed

Loved 

Through it all

My forest of it

Was plentiful

But the trees

Have been

Slowly yet surely

Not even cut down

But burned by

You

And now

We together

Live in a desert

Because you have

Deserted

All that I gave you

Grant me some

Allowance

I have nothing

Yet I tried 

My best

I realize three fundamental truths at the exact same time~

Somewhat based on a true story, not mine, his.
