The love which I deserve (2003)

I didn’t ask you to

wash my laundry

or drive me downtown

when it rained.

Your love is

the dutiful kind.

But what I ache for

is to see you;

arms outstretched

and burning to tell me

why your day was shit.

And when

I’ve listened to every syllable

and noticed what’s not said,

you turn

to me

offering

nurturing,

undivided

attention.
