The Inadequate False Notion and the Cure -Don’t Expect Too Much
Calling and calling, your phone calls are in excess
I have begun to feel like you don’t get the mess(age)
That I’m occupied and can’t talk, honestly, busy to boot
Maybe I’m working hard to take home some loot
You keep texting and asking of my whereabouts
You’ve got honestly no clue some of the cards I am dealt
You think your presence is the only thing I live for
But I guess you don’t know that my life includes much more
It scares you when I push you away
You beg and you plead, “please baby stay”
You apologize and get withdrawn, but to me it is just a con
Cus’ I’ve heard it so many times
Seriously now, have I heard all your lines?
Every time the same routine, but all you say is that I am being mean
You apologize for upsetting me but come on, don’t you see?
The words you spew don’t work on me
For they are yesterdays remarks and they don’t mean a thing
Only would if you were the king
And all your peasants would look up to you cos’ you ruled the place
You like being cherished and coddled like a child
This is why I shiver when your number is dialed
For you are needy and insecure
The way a kitty cat goes “purrr”
You’re terrified and you’re weak, especially when you act like this
And don’t think it will go away with a single kiss
You suffocate me and it makes me sick
And this hatred I’ve created for you makes me feel like a prick
I wonder out loud how we’ve become this
Can’t you see, we’re opposites and never agree
I don’t ask for a lot, as strange it that may sound
I want to be listened to after an overwhelming day
I want to speak my mind and have my sorrows taken away
I want to complain and have you believe
In my hopes and dreams and work-place schemes
Why don’t you…
Laugh at my stories, for everyone else thinks they are swell
Instead of Mr. Stoneface looking like you’re suddenly unwell
You don’t have a fever but your face says something’s up
As right now you look like a little, ill pup

Deal With Your Narcissist
Why don’t you try acknowledging what I say
Give me some feedback on my day to day
Wholeheartedly listen and show in your eyes
Show me it’s me, who you idolize
Flowers to my house oh, what a surprise
I should expect them by now, this sweet demise
Every time you feel hurt, like I’ve pushed you down
Then you make me queen for a day and you give me a crown
But it doesn’t last long; it’s a sad love song
I’m unappreciated by you, no matter what I do
Everyone else thinks I’m great, why not you, mate?
One last thing before I finish
One last thing I’d love for you to diminish…
You don’t have to eat around the clock
But every time I say no you start to balk
I tell you “no” only because I care, but all I get is that irritating glare
You degrade people and hate
You won’t ever debate
You can be rude and crass and are the first to judge
And then of course you will be the last too budge
You’ve got a hard head and won’t ever change
For you haven’t thus far, and now you just think I’m deranged
All because I expect too much
I expect the woman at the store to not be grouchy but polite
And then I get upset when she starts to pick a fight
I expect the snow to not fall today
As it is only one month till May
3-6 inches they said was forecasted
White snow falling here, other territories being blasted
With nuclear explosions and people in grief
Everyone somewhere has got their beef
How about we all just take a chill pill
People fighting over oil and land and the importance of it all- nil
I propose a toast to stop expecting so much
Like remember that movie, think it’s called Dutch?
He expected the boy to be perfectly behaved
But what he found was a boy who needed to be saved
Before we all get hurt worse and damage our inners
All around the world is a never-ending list of sinners
Everyone has their uniqueness and things that make them tick
Some people laugh at things that make others’ sick
If you don’t expect how people should act
Then you won’t get let down – that is a fact
You won’t falter to the floor, waiting to hear more
You won’t lose faith in your firm, when you don’t get a promotion
For you wouldn’t have created that inadequate false notion
