He came home everyday,
Turned on the television,
Ignored me and slept.

She came home late,
Went to her room
And started working again.
Shutting me out.

They were unfocused.
They were careless.
They were mindless.

She was a workaholic.
He was lazy.
She put work before me.
He put himself before me.

I cared for myself.
I played with myself.
I did everything for myself.

It was a fact,
I was alone.
I was ignored.
I was forgotten.
