3000 miles away

yes, mother
i am in love.
who would have guessed
that i have feelings.
in love with a man
who lives oh-so-far away.
(i guess i fucked that up, too.)
so just shutthefuckup.
you wouldn't understand
being in love.
you don't even know
what love is.
so why don't you
kill me
and use the money
to pay the long-distance phone bill.
