I'm tired With this set up I don't wanna hear it. You keep blaming 'Bout his errors Yet to him you still submit. You weep, you cry Again and again He doesn't deserve your tears. I've seen you in A thousand breakdowns It's all the same for years. You remember me When you're down Miserable, depressed. And take me for granted When everything's Abreeze. Sometimes I wish I don't exist Evade this aching pain. But I'd rather be hugged And loved by you For a while I'll be your king. (Anguish of a worn-out pillow. )

@sol_cee Oh. It's a situation in which a girl / boy has a romantic interest in the other but gets the "Let's just be friends" response.

My pillow is worn out. Still use it. Not even sure how long it'll be before my significant other decides I need a replacement.

I only have one question...how do you pronounce "pillow"? Is it: pill-o? Or: pell-o? (rhymes with Jello) Because my hubby says I'm wrong.

You have such a great perspective for the things which are often used but never often thought about-you are very good at seeing what others miss, even if it is in jest;)

Well done!! At first I though you were anguishing about writing here, ie. submit, and your computer keeps freezing like it does for many of us here and elsewhere. I never got to thinking about your pillow though. Glad you included that tidbit.

That pillow must be tear stained, gloop drenched worn to shreds with the pounding and the fisting it has received.. Maybe its time to replace him.
