    I have paid nine months of rent on my own
    and then out the blue you want to come home
    my heart didn't melt,
    it felt nothing at all
    after everything you've done to me
    now you want to call?
    You can't understand
    since you're getting help
    trying to act like a man
    i remain silent, not giving you a chance to explain
    rather an opportunity to run your mouth and hang
    i want to hear all you're doing and all you say you could do for me
    my question is simple though
    where were you while I was single handedly raising your kids trying to be a family?
    You heard from your daughter that I am having my own child
    thats what made you pick up the phone and my number you dialed
    You ask if my man is taking care of me
    holding me close and rubbing my belly?
    Makes me laugh when you say this
    since you never gave me anything to miss
    made me always provide for self
    with you I could never lean for help.
    I hear regret in your voice, B*tch choke
    for this conversation is getting old
    i'm at the end of my rope
    and for you my heart is cold
    and so to him i finally speak
    no fear on the phone, i know he is weak
    i am glad you're learning about the choices you made
    but with all the pain my good memories did fade
    i will never take you back
    but don't be discouraged by that fact
    you made children with woman all over town
    those little ones need a real man around
    so get help for them and for you
    cause believe it or not, you and I are through.

    feels good when something just flows out like that with little editing, like I have control over my emotions by focusing on the words I use.
