Did somebody say 'break-up'?
'I never want to let you go',
Is a funny sort of phrase. It implies
that whether I leave you to rot,
Is somehow your decision.
But darling, you know, I don't recall
ever needing your permission to leave so, why?
Why should I bow down to your authority?
The authority of a boy who still gets tucked in each night,
The authority of someone too fucking lazy to put up any sort of fight
Sweetheart, where's your spark?
How can you be so content to fizzle out in the dark and just accept?
Accept the world that is brought to you,
Without wanting to seize it.
The only thing you ever seized was my heart, my wise lack
of wisdom and willingness to explore and play,
My conviction and decision to die another day because you,
You will never understand,
That you can't hold someone else's world
in the palm of your hand without
them laying waste to it.
Without them ripping it back and taking it
to dizzying heights.
So far above your high class dreams on your first class flight.
Your dreams of a house and marriage and children
Transpiring to the lowliness of me in the kitchen?!
I give me each day my daily bread,
And I will never be so easily led down the path
you carved out for me in your little head because,
I can carve my own.
A better one, instead.
So if you really never want to let me go,
Because, I'll have you know, that that will never be an issue.
When I leave, there'll be no letting involved,
No granting of permissions,
You have to see that when I leave,
It's by my own admission.
