I hope your husband treats you better

than your mom's boyfriend treated her.

I'm sorry I mentioned their violence when we fought-

a bad time to bring it up

but I guess I knew we were through.

"Best friends forever" typically lasts a year or two.

In case no one's said it,

you deserved a better childhood

than the one you had in a torn apart house

about to cave in- just like you.

I'm sorry I didn't see the hole growing around you

but my Momma made me leave the Dump

and Daddy wouldn't let me come back to save you.

Shit.

You always did say I was selfish.
