Nothing Left To Gain

Moving On

You walk in the door

And tell me about your day

But when you ask about mine

I try to tell you

But your attention goes away.

I get so excited

When I learn something new

And out of everyone

I just wanted to tell you.

I have learned talking

Instead of fighting

But still it’s your feelings

That you just keep hiding.

I have tried for too long

For an emotional bond

You don’t want to share

And to ask you to change

Just wouldn’t be fair.

It’s okay that we are different

Neither of us are to blame

But when one wants more

Staying becomes empty

With nothing left to gain.
