martyr complex

I don't want to ask for what I want
Attention not given
But you long for me
You live mindlessly in forgetting
And I'm forgotten too
I'm a longing
A saddness 
A betrayal 
A one true love
Something intangible
Something sweet
And I thought me standing in front of you would show you what I don't want to say
I still care...
So much my body shakes with it
But you savor your misery
Trapped in an addiction to feeling helpless
You survive off the crumb of my existence
Satisfied with what little I have to offer you
