What You Have to Say (Villanelle)

I’m sick of hearing what you have to say,
I wonder why you are so upset,
You can’t talk to me that way.


When I listen to you it’s hard for me to stay,
It’s hard to see that you aren’t done yet,
I’m sick of hearing what you have to say.

I don’t know what you’re thinking, it’s not okay,
You never did this when we first met,
You can’t talk to me that way.

Part of me is more confused every day,
I’m tired of every lecture, every promise, every threat,
I’m sick of hearing what you have to say.

Can’t you see my love for you decay?
The longer I’m here, the angrier I get,
You can’t talk to me that way.

The future with you is gray,
You act like I owe you, like I’m in debt,
I’m sick of hearing what you have to say,
You can’t talk to me that way.
