I am a sad excuse for a “significant other”


Absentee Boyfriend 


I’m never there

When you need me

You can count on me

For that

When seconds count

And help is minutes away

You know where

I won’t be at

How many times

Have I let you down

In that moment

You needed me most

I’d wager my record

Is damn near perfect

But I’m not normally

One to boast

Why on earth

Do you love me

Please make me understand

Truth be told

I don’t deserve your affection

Perhaps you

Should find another man
