Craving me

I admit I am confused, I’ve never been so grateful

They want to come near but see where they took me,

I don’t want to go back to them.

It makes me wonder where am I,

I’ve been so good to them, but see what they asked for.

No love that mistreats, is acceptable in my world.

I know that I am a little harder to handle,

But you can’t help it, this is just who I am.

Built with the stones they threw.

Yet you want me to be kind,

so you have to show me your real side.

You’ll see what I wanted from life,

as try to come close to my soul.

My eyes are lighter as they’ve seen so much,

Ten thousand steps and see I am still where I used to be.

I did whatever they asked me to,

but no admiring I got!

I yearned for their presence,

they were busy playing hide and seek,

I knew I wasn’t that important, so I asked them to leave.

Here I am watching them craving me.
