Changing a viewpoint

My partner, disrespects me,
He leaves the house a mess
His socks are dirty on the floor
Have you seen his vest?
My partner doesn’t do his share
It really makes me hop
Often he forgets  to bring
Home something from the shop
It shows he doesn’t value me, shows such a lack of care
He doesn’t call me regularly, don’t know how, he would dare.

I don’t think he really loves me
He flirts with other girls
He says he’s being pleasant
I sneer when this occurs
I want all his attention
It’s how life should be
Although he’s really got quite boring
I am sure you would agree
I understand his motives can read him like a book
I think I need to put him down, if only with a look

Let me hold that thought, is there another way
If I change my focus, are his actions so passee
Am I seeing lack of love, showing insecurity
Are his actions aimed to hurt, be  truly nasty
Does it mean I am devalued, my minds a centrifuge
I think I am over reacting wanting things my own way
Maybe I want to change him, to what I want to see
If I change my focus find a new way to interplay
Our relationship should live ,expand get better every day
We need to talk and listen more, hold our differences at bay

Looking with another eye, I love the unique man
I should share his eye for beauty, encourage while I can
He chooses to share with me,  I should be feeling sublime
It’s not about my value, if he errs from time to time
If I change my focus, and stop carping, find a way
Our relationship should live ,expand get better every day
If I can’t see him as unique and feel happy with his feet of clay
Then I am in the wrong relationship, need to call it a day
