A Flock of Sparrows for Majel: Six Years

A Flock of Sparrows for Majel

(About a 1 minute read)

Six years have we been together.
How many more before you treat like you know me?

Honestly, I’m just curious if you have any plans
To take a look?

I know. I know. I know.
I’m upset. I’m angry. I’m tired. I’m irritable.
I feel neglected because we didn’t have sex last night.

Is that not exactly what you were going to say?
Got your number don’t I?

I’ve told you how I really feel
About these things.
I’ve told you a hundred times before.

Yes, I wish you would take a look.
I wish that very much.

But why do I wish it?

You say anger and upset.
I say intimacy is more fun than the distances.

A hundred times I’ve said:
Intimacy is more fun than the distances.

If you were a doctor
You would place my arm in a cast
Every time I told you I had a cold.

You tell me I mean the world to you.
That I’m your special man.

But you treat me like I’m just some face
You see in a crowd.

Six years have we been together.
How many more before you treat like you know me?

    1. Sometimes it is easier to deal with something when it’s happening to you, than when the same thing happens to a friend, Marysa.

      It took a few minutes for what you said to sink in, but I’m feeling for you now. Oscar Wilde once said something to the effect that no one should treat their lovers like they were ordinary.. I think he was right. I think it’s one of those crimes against love. Sorry it happened to you.
