Shut up! Shut up! Why don’t you? I’m awake, I can hear you. Why do you have to yell so loud? I’m not lazy, I’m just tired and I’m sick of you. Stop it with your complaining already. Yes! I pawned the watch, we needed the money. You should be happy that I found a way to get us some money, but no you want to carry on complaining about everything I do. I look for a job as much as possible, I cannot help the fact that no one wants to hire me. And why do you always have to speak of my friends in a negative manner? I’m a poet so that means I’m an artist as well, did you think I was good-for-nothing when you married me? Give me credit, at least I’m trying.

Please suck up your pride and go home. Go back to your family. I don’t care. And don’t you dare speak of my father in that tone! My father was a good man. You act as if your father was an angel sent from heaven. For God’s sake stop it with the criticism, it really does get old. I married you because I loved you, but you are too blind to realize it. For better or for worse, remember that? Or did you only marry me because of my money? Hmm, now that’s a foolish question. I would have been a great father, but I’m glad the thing was born dead too, because I probably would have killed him, so he wouldn’t have to deal with you and your mean spirit. Oh,
