Meeting Expectations

How much longer will you cast me aside Late at night, I thought of you and cried Wondering shall it be better if I died For I only feel the hurt you provide Hold me, someone, for I am weak I am too hurt to move, too tired to speak A person to understand is who I seek Someone to care for me as though I am unique For you, I want to be perfect Desiring to earn your respect But am I the one you will always reject? What exactly am I to expect?

Jessica, You convey your pain very clearly. I can feel the anger and despair too! I hope that these feelings exist only on the page and not in this life. Great write. Very moving. And if these feelings are real, I do care. Bless, Will
