Spoken Word – GOODBYE


 Goodbye – 27-FEB-2012

I promise I’m not really bitter, You’ve just left a bad taste in my life.
I’ll forget your shallow promises… The “How you would Be, if you were my wife”…
That’s probably NOT gonna happen now. 
It’s just your fairytale.
I’m certain you will replace my energy…with some desperate henpecked male…
 
I’m certainly not the one,
Who can fulfill your twisted need
To control THE MAN who you say you love
Who’s clearly not your son.
 
You see, the randomness of your consistency is not consistent at all
With the balance that I require to release to you my heart’s all.
The only thing I can count on is the frequency of your life’s many battles
The “I’m sensitive over this”, and the “I’m upset over that”, it’s like the nuisance of a Baby’s rattle.
Just background noise that indicates YES, you’re awake and occupied
No signs of your desire for any resolute truth, You just wanna be pacified. 
 
So… Here…. Stick THIS in your mouth!   I’ve raised all my kids!
 
I refuse to manage insecurity that’s wrapped up neatly in your low self-esteem.
I’ve done that before,
and I adamantly swore
I’d go to HELL before I rewind that scene!
 
I know I have a list of things required of a wife for me
But, that doesn’t make a difference if I never can be free
Of my own past hurt and sufferings that clearly was meant to be
As an opportunity for personal growth and relationship maturity.
 
So, I guess what I’m really saying is… “Okay we gave it a try
As God is in heaven, I do believe in his divine destined-eye
That new from my beginning, what the purpose would eventually be
For my choosing to explore romantic love with you and now needing to say goodbye.
