I heard you sighing when I was
ignoring you today.
I wondered what your issue was.
I wondered if I should care?
You bore the heck out of me.
Now that is a truth I would
not have admitted before.
You talk and my ears go numb.
You smile and my heart curdles.
Your clicking tongue holds no
passion for me.
I'd rather have sex with a piece of paper.
I'd rather drive nails in my eyes.
I heard you thinking when I was
pretending you didn't exist.
Images of gallows sprung to mind
and I smiled at the mental image
of hanging you by the neck until dead.
We could play cowboy justice, you see.
It would mean so much to me!
I have to accept that you will stay
until I figure out
how to chase you away.
