Mr. Nice Guy
by Ame Ai
You are an intolerable condition.
You want things your way.
You give when it's convenient.
You take time
and waste my effort.
You cannot afford time for me
or the money you waste.
You cool off when things heat up. Another way of saying that is that you excite me
to let me down.
You break commitments,
but keep coming back.
You set negative goals for us and have unrealistic pipe dreams.
You talk to yourself negatively,
and your dominance beats yourself into submission.
You perceive me to be young when I am youthful. I perceive you to be old when you are stubborn.
You feign interest. You have no interest in my interests.
You don't really want to know me. You don't give a damn.
You feign care when you tell me what I should do.
You don't even know how I feel, but you feel
guilty about my passive-aggressive sarcasm or my conscious
sound conflict-resolution techniques,
like the use of "you"
as vengeance for your use of me,
so you blame me for feeling bad about yourself
because you are too sensitive to how insensitive
I perceive you to be.
You think it is illogical to be with me. I do too. It's not worth the effort.
You do not know me.
I cannot do
Author's Note: Another break-up letter by someone who is fed up.
