Requests

I asked for time,

You wanted to dine.

I asked for time,

You asked why,

Is it worth a dime?

So, I watched you squirm, watched you act like you were building a castle.

I watched you tell everyone we were okay.

I watched you remind the world that:

“he who finds a wife…”

Wife?

I asked for time and when you closed in on what I had,

I left.

Now, here I am listening to the sound of the fridge, reaching out for my phone as it charges,

Counting the many ways I tried to show you,

Love, what seemed like a minute request to you, was an eon of freedom,

to breathe, think, question, re-align, mold, challenge,

every fibre of my being.
