I’m tired, so tired

I’m tired, so tired
I made conversation,
and smiled when her texts came
But it would never be a thing
Did I know that when I started this?
I must have but I rarely listen to myself.
 
How I wished it would be something,
I wished she smiled when I texted
I wished she laughed at my dramatic jokes
I wished she was in awe of my theatrics.
And how I hoped she doesn’t roll her eyes at my name,
thinking of me as such a liability.
 
Was she always nice to everybody, what a shame that would be.
Here I am, left on my own, slipping into a spiral of constant thinking  
questioning
asking
whining
pretending
lying, lots of lying.
 
So much work, for something that may mean nothing.
I remind myself why I am tired,
so very tired.

    This piece is great! I love the tree lines that repeat itself. I totally got the scenario she was in without you telling me exactly. Good vibes!

    " slipping into a spiral of constant thinking "
    Oh, I can relate so much to this. I love how this poem is so real and has like a real feeling to it(if that makes sense )
    Re- You are literally an angel. No need to thank me for that, Thank YOU for supporting me and reading my work. Haha, I would never want you to leave!
    Oh goodness, I hate get-togethers. It's just so awkward for me there:\ BUT I wish you luck and I hope you find a friend there (That's what I try to do at least).
    Have a wonderful day! (That was not cheesy at all, It was the sweetest thing ever!)
