If you have negative feelings, write them down and write them down here.


She still loves you
She still gets you
She meets the requirements
As defined by SEIU 503
Our union for our labor at work
They are what I am not with you
They add injury to insult
My jealousy thus justified
Not all my fault
They are listed below
They leave my soul hurting so
And you'll not be manipulated
You'd rather not be related
To me; however, legally domestic partner to she
And I wonder why I hurt
And I wonder why I choose to flirt
With losing what we do together
As it's Monday again, alone, cold windy weather
And I don't know what to do
And I don't know how I'll get through
This night at that office there alone
Weighted down by a heart of stone
That isn't going to end
Until I find the way to mend
The stone's heaviness that hides
Weighing down all my insides
Letting my heart's blood flow slower
Because you choose to stay and know her
And not know me
To the degree
Stated below
Perhaps it's time I let you go.
