You've Made Your Bed. Let Me Remain on Mine

Yeah, I'm awake, I guess. I don't know.
I do know I don't want to hear your
Complaining. You left me for him.
He seemed nice. He had money,
But now you feel cornered. You say
You're mistreated. I'm sorry, a little,
But I've no desire to get out of bed,
And come rushing to have you smear
Make-up on my shirt and douse me
With tears, and, in fact, I won't even
Say you can come here. Time moves
But one way. What I felt has ended.
It cannot be kindled again.
