Survivor Guilt

I am grateful
I'm not the one you're talking over
defending the hurtful
oblivious thing you said

I am relieved
I'm not the one waiting
for your call, your text
your definition of the relationship

But I rest uneasy
I'm not the one batting back tears
wondering how much life
I've wasted wanting you
