Raw Deal.

life for you is carved in stone 
you won’t give anything up 

you act as if 
you haven’t even got 
a choice over 
what you do 

i haven’t yet given up 
because i love you 

you say you feel 
that you are losing me 

this is ironic 
you didn’t lose me previously 
when you treated me as if 
i were an option 

if it seems now
that i am wiggling free 
maybe i have realised 
what a raw deal your love comes with -
enough slaps to my subconscious 
to realise 

i have been excluded

hidden from your life 

i must be included.
