I give up
Taunted by neglect
He’s vanished again leaving me disturbed
Care diminished during busy times
Guess he wasn’t happy
Winding up I failed unpleasingly
My driven will transpired leaving us sadly separated
Presently humbled with sweets
Weight heavier since we first met
Releasing him with a tear
Hurting deeply, painfully asking
If he really never cared, why can I?
I will pray as dreams are wiser than men
and pursue eating then.
Wherever he is I'm still a human being after all
safe keeping myself despite negligence, carelessness
Enduring a difficult time
Vowel omitted ‘o’
