Law 11: Learn To Keep People Dependent on You

Don’t do anything

until I get there

until you hear from me

I can’t help you

if you don’t listen

if you had done what I said

thing would have worked out better

you know that don’t you

this should be enough

to hold you for now

it’s all you’ll need

there’ll be more when you need it

not when you want it


I’m the only one

you need to trust

you can always count on me

don’t waste your time with anyone else

no I don’t mind

don’t expect more than I can spare

it’s better than nothing right

it’ll be adequate

you can count on my smile

on my listening


yes you can rely on me

but only on me

because if I’m not enough

no one will satisfy you


you can’t even depend on yourself

don’t waste your time

my life is full enough

without you

but without me

you are nothing

so don’t ever take the risk

of finding out out otherwise8brick2

Like my pictures? I post lots on Tumblr
