How could you?

I recall some quotes on hearing this song.

Remember what brought you together first, when the urge is to go your separate ways.

Sometimes you need to spend time with people to remember why you were not doing so.

If they show you their real face again and again, accept it and move on

How could you, just how could you?
assume proprietary airs
I’m not estate to be owned
redeveloped or built on?

assume proprietary airs
plan castles on my ruins
redeveloped or built on?
I will never be that object…

plan castles on my ruins
How could you, just how could you?
I will never be that object…
I’m not estate to be owned

  1. I’ve always despised the term “trophy wife.” If this person is nothing but a trophy, she isn’t really a wife. Your poem made me think of that kind of attitude. In that sense, I’m happy to be ugly. Nobody tries to make me into a trophy.
