If today had a face, I'd punch it

I dont like feeling
Anything at all
I avoid my emotion
Preventing the fall

But somehow your words
have rascal ability
To evoke in me
A pathetic jealousy

I have no right
I know, I've no claim
Thought I was immune
From going insane

But those few harmless words
"she's coming round tonight"
Morphs hidden feelings
Into parasites

Let her come round
Your bargain-bin tart
But make sure you get
A reciept for your heart
