She Tried To Make Me Jealous And Lost Me Forever

‘By Hook or by Crook’ only works
when you are out for revenge
or power hungry to such a degree
that no one else’s feelings matter.
Call me old fashioned…
but that isn’t love.
And as she sits all the way back there,
stuck in the past,
dabbing her vindictive selfishness
with too much dewberry.
Hating and lamenting
the slow grind through another
emotionally empty year.
I pat myself upon the back
and think…lucky escape.
Why the Hell would anyone
want to tie their loving heart to that?
