By Queazenart

I changed the locks
so you would stop interrupting me
when I'm trying to fall asleep
on the couch at 2 in the morning.

The dog is now mine.
The TV's mine.
The bed is mine.

Nothing in this apartment
belongs to you
since you're never here anyways.
As the phone vibrates on my chest
and I respond to my therapist,
still laying on the couch.

You can find somewhere else to stay
since you're never here anyways.
