someone will call me by the name of a monster

A collection of poems under one title.

pt. one

i've long since resigned to the fact that i
no longer have anyone
willing to answer my 11 pm phone calls
(or any longer past that).
and nor do i have anyone
willing to sit in silence without comment
whether i cry or not
without intruding with their own life.
there's no one willing to slow their lives down for me, or anyone else, really.
if they can't share their stories and expect me to expect the same outcome.
-i wont say it's toxic but it's not friendship.
just not having people willing to be apathetic instead of sympathetic, it's not stupid. they tell you their stories and expext you to have the same outcome, then they get mad when you can't follow through. faux friends, you just hang around people you could only ever hope would understand you. i didn't want your story i just needed someone to talk to.

do you hear the title now

    This was so powerful, the ending especially just really speaks, "-i wont say it's toxic but it's not friendship." I really hope you're not dealing with this in real life and if you are- I'm here for you cause I know what it feels like and boy does it suck.

    This is my favorite part! "willing to sit in silence without comment, whether i cry or not, without intruding with their own life." Good job!
