In the end, he decided to let her go. He thought about their relationship and weighed it against the future – the tears, the annoyances, the fights, the misunderstandings, the frustrations – and decided that it wasn’t worth it.
He even made it easy on her, painting himself as the villain, ignoring her tears because if he didn’t it would make things worse later. He even insisted she take the Springteen CD’s, even though that caused him a twinge of regret.
So he watched her go and he was happy about it all until the next morning, when he woke up alone.

Writers, join the parade. Drop me a line. Get linkage.
He was a mean individual
He had a heart like a bone
He was a naturally crazy man
And better off left alone
