After A While

After a while
it gets tiring
to always be the one
     who initiates
     who cares enough
           to go through lengths
                 to show how much I care

After a while
it gets pretty old
when all you do is give
and you don’t get anything in return

After a while
the waiting takes forever
and all you want to do
   is leave
   give up
   once and for all

After a while
it gets frustrating
and confusing
and mind boggling
        and you question
                  things
                     people
                         events
                            motives

After a while
the smile that has been pasted on your face freezes
over
and you frown
or cry
instead  of smile
And somehow
it makes you feel a little better
if only for a while.
