For Once

For Once by Valerie Parente

For once
I just want to be somebody’s emotional outlet without being taken for granted
I just want to be able to eat again without wanting to vomit
I just want to be able to listen music again without thinking of the time I spent
I just want to be able to be my true self without feeling completely broken
I just want to know that I did the right thing by saying what needed to be said
I just want to be out of this pain but I have no idea what comes next
because I don’t know what to do without one of my best friends.
