You know,
I can hear you.
I can definitely hear you.
even from downstairs I can hear you.
you may want to consider that the next time you
argue over it (more)
I've got nothing left to give
to those who use me
and leave me
to suffocate in my cocoon

I've got nothing left to say (more)
Why not? they ask me
and I mutter something average.
but I am really afraid
for what comes after the plunge
that you may say, No,
the looks, the words, the kindness (more)

not much of anything
but please don't look at me like that
like I've had everything
I've ever wanted handed to me
like I have never worked in my life (more)
I'm not sure how you don't know
without a doubt
that I love you
I don't think anyone has seen
all of me
every part of me
