The Other Woman

Mustn't fight, mustn't fight, ...
I refuse to fight her,
The Other Woman.
She wants to take it all
Why doesn't she just accept it?
The heart that used to be hers
Is now mine.
That no matter what,
She will hold a piece of your heart
That I can't take.

I refuse to fight her
Because I don't want you to choose
Maybe I am afraid that that piece she holds
Is stronger then the portion I have.
I don't want you to make a choice
Because I know it will break your heart.
But ultimately,
I love you too much to let you choose.

I thought this started strong; that the Persona was nonplussed. But I as I read on, I saw a lot of fear. I like the way it unravelled. "I love you too much to let you choose" is powerful and paradoxical.

Glad you like it.

I like that route.
No fights, & no push to choose.
The bigger person does that.
