Expired Time

#VocalNPM

I don’t have time.

When I say I don’t have time for relationships anymore, what I mean is I don’t have time for:

meaningless texts,

calls,

& FaceTimes.

Those “Come Thru, just so I can use you because I’m lonely” type of people.

I don’t have time for useless dates & indecisiveness, I don’t have time to fall for someone

only to end up

landing flat on my face,

drowning in the deepest parts of my emotions.

I don’t have time for: “maybe,”

“I think so,”

“I’m not sure.”

I don’t have time to waste any more time.

I can’t see myself opening up letting my walls down

only to end up wishing

I would’ve built them 1,000,000,000 feet higher.

I know it's selfish for me to be this way, but every time I try

it always ends the same.


Maybe I’m the one to blame, but then again,

I could very well say

you guys made me this way.

I’m not completely writing off relationships. I’m MORE CAUTIOUS,

caring for ME

& my MENTAL HEALTH.
