Lent: Day 7

I put myself into a box for you

Not a present, per se

But a box confined but what

You wanted (or what I thought you wanted)

But my realization is

No one who cares about you

Truly cares

Should try and confine you

I’m just sad you couldn’t tell me

Before you left me by the side of the road

Discarded for the landfill
