Why now?

I just want to be enough to someone

Am I enough?

My whole life no one shows up, when they do it’s because they need something.

But they never show up when I need them- I must not be enough

Why am I only enough out of convenience? When it matters the most to you

I'm only enough for the dog…. Seems to be the only one who shows up every time

Why can't I be enough for you? You complain that I've changed and drifted away and moving on

You're just saying this because I'm slowly seeing my worth and seeing through your bullshit

You just want me low enough so I can't see what it is you're doing to me

You're just upset that I am enough for me and if it's just me and the dog on this path that is okay.

Why does that matter to you though? You never cared enough before when I was desperate enough to just take what you gave- which is basically a fake ass smile with some bullshit

Why are you showing up now?
