I placed my bets
in a game I eventually lost.
There’s a price for everything.
I paid my share,
then I noticed you wouldn’t.
So, naturally, I stepped in and paid yours.
I even went into debt. even
I never asked you to pay me back,
But then the debt took over me.
I cut my own costs so you could spend.
And you did.
you spent and you spent.
Never noticing how you drained me.
I finally didn’t eat so you could.
And you did;
you ate and you ate.
Then, I was all skin and bones.
I was tired and weak.
your hand never reached towards me
Still, it was always full.
Once, you unknowingly killed me;
I built you a house of bones.
I wanted you to see how beautiful it was.
I wanted you to appreciate.
I asked if you could help me.
you said you couldn’t keep doing this,
you left Me with my house of bones.
