It is true, I have loved,
several times infact.
and yet
I am intolerable.
The great unlovable.

Estimates indicate
High maintainance,
but a low return.
Uneconomical.
It just wouldn't work.

"you're too good a friend."
"you'd make a brilliant husband,
but you'd be no good as a boyfriend, you know?"
"i'd only end up hurting you."

Then I'll talk about you
behind your back, if it'd work.
I'll buy you a ring, and five minutes of
a preacher's time.
Bring out the branding irons!

Something, Anything!
Do you not see?
I only am what you ask for.
That's what makes
those two letters
Hurt so much.
