You always affirm your  

Disappointments in me 

If not through your words 

Then certainly by deeds 

And within that context  

You’ve never let me down  

Just as you repeatedly tout  

Now I ask myself, whatever  

Would I do- without you  

I’m sure time will tell the tale  

Long after I have already fled  

In search of true acceptance  

That doesn’t hurt me to death  

Tootle-oo… you narcissistic fool
