No Money From Me

When the rent money is due,
I wait and wonder about you.
The money you see, comes from you.
That is what you said you would do;
For me and the little mouths to feed.

When the utilities threatened to go off,
And cold surrounds the abode,
I wait and wonder about you.
The money you see, comes from you.
This is what you said you would do;
For me and the little mouths to feed.

The money you send is only so much;
And you said you cared.
But you are never there for me to touch,
And when I need your help,
You are busy or tired.

I see how it is now;
Anger won't help me,
But when you ever need me for something,
I never did say I would be there and I don't have any money, honey.

About this poem:
Sometimes frustration is overwhelming in a relationship and feelings for one another can become cold and distant.

I simply LOVE thus poem! It is ideal for my situation. ..Unfortunately I can't say anger won't help me because I cannot help being angry especially when the man expects me to pay for everything. ..In my version of the poem I would substitute "you" for me as I am the one that pays the rent utilities etc...Thanks for sharing
