I look forward to when I can be more like a comma in your life,

Be part of the sentence or at the very least be the beginning and ending of it,

I never expected to be so flippantly thrown around so thoughtlessly,

So easily ignored and barely noticed,

Not even given the attention provided to an exclamation mark or an ellipsis,

Instead I sit silently by as time, pauses and words flow beside me,

Forgotten and fading…
