lovers’ final decree…

we’ve needed
to have this conversation
for a while
you see
things are
just not working out
i realize
we’ve been together
for a long time
but let’s face it
all we do
is argue about money
how to spend it
best way to budget it
who we should help with it
and
at every turn
we disagree
we’ve grown apart
i’ve matured
and
you
you’ve become
well
self-absorbed
you spend
most of your time
trying to influence others
like some nouveau riche kid
image has become
more important
than anything
that you promised me
and now
now
you’re shutting down
on me
it’s time
don’t you agree
