Thoughts like These

I remember when you had more time 
to spend on worrying about me
One day, you told me you were tired
Tired of waiting for me to come back to life.
After you left,
I had never felt so alone.
Although, I can’t really blame you at all.
It took me this long to realize 
that we all have thoughts like these, once in a while.

The last time we spoke,
you asked me, “What the hell is the matter?”
I told you, “I was bitten by a vampire”.
“That explains a lot,
You’ve been dead to me, for quite a while”

I can’t say, I blame you
I would have walked away, too.
There’s a place, where people like me belong
So long as I am there,
you won’t be bothered by me.
It took me this long to realize
that we all have thoughts like these, once in a while.
