Part Time Boyfriend

I don’t want a part time boyfriend

Who’s only concern is to be here

When it’s convenient for him

When our relationship fits

Neatly into the folds of his life

Love is messy

It’s overwhelming


And calm all at the same time


I don’t want you here to hold my hand

Just because the sun is shining

And things feel

Just so right


I don’t want you here

To make promises

That only in that moment

Do you intend to keep

Hoping instead

That I will forget


My time is not to be wasted

If I tell you I love you

I meant it


By no means am I an escape

From your everyday life

I want a man to stand by my side

Not a part time boyfriend

That hides when life gets uncomfortable


I may love you

And all our memories

Yet time will not be wasted

When the disclosure had been given

Either you are here or there

No maybe

No inbetween


It’s full time or no time

With that said

You can take our memories to bed

Being part time

Only thoughts of me

Will you get
