Farewell Abuse


When the excitement of courtship is gone
Together with the shyness and uncertainty
When security settles in
Shifting the boundaries
And kindness subsides
Ceding to hostility
While familiarity creeps in
Ushering contempt
And arrogance arises
Expelling humility
Together with respect
Making space for antagonism
Threatening confidence
Assaulting peace of mind
And ravaging happiness
Then this relationship
Has ceased to be worthwhile
For I too, deserve to be happy
If we cannot be happy together
Then it's time to for one of us to leave
Since I cannot rise to your level of abuse
I’ll simply bid you farewell.
