the bargaining chip

unsatisfied with a life possessed by the significant other of choice, s/he begins to flirt, to open a door & lets in the heart of another, who appreciates him/her like s/he feels that s/he should be, who makes him/her feel sexy, who makes him/her feel alive, who makes him/her feel like leaving said significant other, at least some of the time--- for the years spent with the longtermer, have not all been bad, they’ve just begun to wither like any flower that has been taken out of the sun & letting on to the new heart in her life so as to set jealousy aflame in the mind of the longtermer is all part of trying to stir things up, to make him/her appreciate what it is that s/he has, to keep them together by any means necessary, inevitably leaving this new heart in the gutter, having fulfilled their job as the manipulated bargaining chip.
