I discover my lover’s plan to leave and it really affects me, but I don’t let it show, making him think I am fine with it and will be fine.

I sink to the bottom

as if I were a rock.

My head is whirling

from the knock.

I am breathless

from the jolt,

and of course

you are going to  bolt.

Discovering your plan,

I think less of you as a man.

Working hard

has not been as lucrative

as I would have liked,

but I can do what I must

and keep in line

with what is just.

I may be left,

but I won’t be left stranded

and will never be branded.

Go, do your thing.

Do what you think

this will bring.

This was a shock

to my system,

but he is not to know,

how very low

I truly feel.

He won’t get

the satisfaction

of knowing for real.

My livelihood will be fine

and what is mine is mine.

Take care, and I mean that,

but you are not taking the cat.

The car is mine,

you didn’t pay a dime,

and I reiterate that I was going

to be just fine.

I tell him to go fix his own dinner,

cause he just left a winner.

    DB…I liked this…even though it was painful to go through this experience of you putting on a brave front…I have trouble with the last lines…
    “I tell him to go fix his own dinner,
    cause he just left a winner.”
    This can be interrpreted in one of two ways…He is a winner for leaving or he is a loser for leaving you who is a keeper and a winner…I am inclined that the latter is what you are meaning, but it doesn’t really say that…
    “I tell him to go fix his own dinner,
    cause he just left me and I’m a winner.” might be a way to clarify…
    Just a thought…Ta Ta…

    “I tell him to go fix his own dinner,

    This can be interpretted one of two ways…he is a winner for leaving or he is a loser for leaving you who happens to be a keeper and a winner…I prefer to think that the latter is what you are mening, even though it doesn’t say that.
    “I tell him to go fix his own dinner,
    cause he just left me and I’m a winner.” might be one way to clarify…
    Just a thought…Ta Ta
