  I don't need your needy love
I can't fill your empty heart
I don't want your greedy love
I'ts time for us to part

Get your lazy ass outa bed
I ain't gonna pay your rent
Better straighten up your head
You just took my last cent

You've been looking for a savior
I've been acting like a mother
Won't you do us both a favor
Go find yourself another

Are you reading my diary or what?!?!? Lol... I guess the great thing about being human is knowing that at any given moment in time, you know that you're not the ONLY person going through this one thing by yourself... And for that I say: "thanks..."

This should be a rap or even a country song. You might have to change "ass" to "butt" for the latter. Good job and good luck.

No Kristen, I think it's MY diary she's reading. I may have to print this one up and present to my husband on a silver platter...

I should give this to my friend who has a freeloader leech of a husband and has been trying to work up the courage to divorce him. Well said!
