You were right, of course, my heart was broken.
I gathered too many dreams in one ungrateful form.
Of course, you were right, my pains must be outspoken,
I should have drowned you in a mordant storm.
Of course, my verse will boost your greedy ego,
You wished to be my muse for so damn long.
So here it goes – I’m still confused about your veto,
We’re good together, why did it go so wrong?
Of course, I cried. You know I am secretly romantic,
I could have written life for you and give you mine,
And you would praise me, being selfishly ecstatic,
The problem is, your worth is ending with this line.
