loathsome creature

we bought a house together

thinking we had something going

I was the lead signature

as I earned more

repainted rebuilt parts of it

while she moaned some

it was not as grand as it should be

for her

& I had to leave

when that got too much

for me

her friends hated me

shouted how I’d lumbered her

with a house not grand enough

for her

& I offered to take it back

as i was left to being in one rented room

take over everything

pay all the bills

but oh no

I was a loathsome creature

& it was much too grand

for me
