A Whole New Plan

She awoke early one morning
To find herself alone in their bed...
She had gotten into another fight
With her boyfriend last night...
Over problems that were all in her head...

She looked in every room
Searching for her long lost lover...
They hadn’t really spoken in days
Her mind often away in a haze...
He grew tired of sharing the bed cover...

She thought the issues were minor
Because they miscommunicated all the time...
He said the constant abuse
Over stuff so obtuse...
The bickering became anything but sublime...

She hadn’t seen the problems arising
Being caught up in her own little world...
As their relationship fell apart
Slowly chipping away at his heart...
Alone in bed he would stay often curled...

She looked across the forest
Searching for her long lost man...
He threw down the white flag
And one day packed his bag...
To set off with a whole new plan...
