Living it Large
I know Im not completely wrong!
It seems you’ve doubted me all along.
Well, actually, it wasn’t doubt..
You were just pushing your control about!
Constantly on my ***,
made me start hating you fast.
I truthfully can’t say hate!
To take that back may be too late.
The honest truth, it is love!
I thought it was “sent from above”!
Man I feel so dumb!
My heart somewhat feels numb.
You poked and you Prodded,
And I guess, that, I allotted.
Now I’m fed up with all the control!
You took and you took, and it finally took toll!
I’ve lost myself letting you lead the way,
So I’ve got to go on my own, I don’t think I should stay.
If you were wise, you’d stay with me.
Support my growth, and just let it be!
You say “we’re done, if I decide to leave!”
Controlling me again, it’s my biggest pet peeve.
I wish you could truly understand how I feel!
Unfortunately, feelings were never your deal.
Your warm and your cold, like a sunny winter day,
and it’s certainly a rare gem, when your humor comes to play.
We are just so different, you and I.
You know it too, you know it’s no lie!
I need someone who feels emotions like me!
Who can bring comfort and support, when I’m feeling unhappy.
I honestly love you, I just wish you knew,
the one thing I hate, that you constantly do!
I know you mean well, of that I’ve no doubt!
But the way to approach me, you know nothing about.
Also, I figure you can’t be happy with me.
Telling me to change, and unhappy, if I disagree.
I know you think I’m emotional, lazy, and my memory hazy.
I wouldn’t be surprised if you even thought I was crazy!
You probably think I’m just like your mom,
Or like Ronda or Rick, I do everything wrong!
I have to start living my own kind of life.
Which I know won’t fit your typical standards for “wife”.
I won’t be rich... or maybe I will.
Either way, I’ll never be ruled by a bill!
Instead, my emotions and love will take charge.
A life ruled by love, is truly “living it large”!
