It's a metaphor which compares a stained jacket to a failing relationship..makes it kind of humorous.My ex-boyfriend wanted his jacket back, but it was stained-like our relationship. Still needs some editing

You kept me warm under starry nights

From midnight 'till morning's first light,

I thought I'd never let you out of my sight

Until...

Something made you change

Suddenly you were estrange

And then I saw the stain:

Small at first,

But then like an outburst

Coming from nowhere

But still it was there

Growing ever more slightly

With each day's passing...

Trying to get it out only made it worse;

Appearing everywhere like it was a curse.

You started mocking me

Knowing that I still needed you,

But you never needed me

To keep warm in morning's dew

The days grew colder

And as I held on tighter

Together we saw the fall of snow,

But there was no connection.

With freezing fingers I had to let you go

Setting the flow of a warmer sensation-

Seasons changed to Summer

Now I have yet another

New jacket I wear;

Springing a new love affair.

How long will it take

For this one to break . . .?
