An Option

It took me so long
but now I see
to you I was an option
and not a priority.

You said you would call
then said you forgot
unfortunately it would happen
more often than not.

Your sports and friends
even your TV shows
always came first
you'd say that's how it goes.

Though my feeling
it would hurt
it was I who
let you treat me like dirt.

When you would call
I would always be there
my actions said I didn't
so why should you care.

I now realize
I threw away my pride
the day I decided
to go on this ride.

I am now able
and want you to know
that it is time
to let you go.

So say goodbye to your option
because I now see
that I deserve and want
to be someone's priority.
