Poem of the Week: The Breakup

The Breakup
April 17, 2017

It’s over. It’s done. It’s finished. We’re through.
What else can I say to get it through to you?
I’ve broken up with you a while ago as things stand,
Yet you keep contacting me in an effort to demand
The attention I once gave you for three whole years.
I gave us all I had, but never once did I hear
From you how grateful you were for my unbridled love,
Not even during those times when push came to shove.
All give, no take—such was my end in the deal.
Now that we’re no longer one, let’s see how you feel,
Now that I’ve stopped giving. Let’s see what you can take.
Let’s see just how long now before you finally break,
‘Cause only then will you know exactly how I’ve been
These past three years plus time after time again.
Trouble is, though, I doubt you’ll change your tune at all,
And the next sap you hook up with will be forced to fall
For your charms and other nonsense just like I had.
My best wishes to him, though, for no one needs it so bad
As what I’d suffered from you, and I’m sure glad I’m gone
From your life forevermore, and I hope after this song
That I never need to return to you ever again,
For I know what you’re all about now from back when,
And hopefully other people will see you for who you are,
Albeit the easy way, for this nasty facial scar
I still bear from our days is too much of a reminder
For me of all those times you’ve put me through the grinder.
Hopefully, no one else will have to bear such a burden
Of warning others of you, but hey…I’m done hurtin’.
I’m moving on with my life far away from you,
No longer concerning myself with what you say or do,
Lest you’re hurting someone else. Then in that case,
I’ll put my foot back down and get right back in your face
To put you back in your place where you bloody belong
According to the frustration you surely feel from this song.
Otherwise, take the hint from one who all too well
Knows the stunts you pull, which’ll surely send you to Hell:
Cut out the nonsense right now and go the hell away
And never return to bother anyone else another day.

Poem of the Week: Not That New Hampshire Call Again!

Not That New Hampshire Call Again!
April 21, 2015

Good grief! Not that New Hampshire call again!
So often have they called without warning.
I haven’t known peace since I don’t know when.

Calling at the same time time and again:
Eleven o’clock in the damn morning.
Good grief! Not that New Hampshire call again!

Pecking at me like a nagging old hen
Over and over ‘til my blood starts warming.
I haven’t known peace since I don’t know when.

Always trying to survey me times ten,
Ringing my number up without warning.
Good grief! Not that New Hampshire call again!

Forever lost is my moment of Zen.
Their HQ I hope feds will be storming.
I haven’t known peace since I don’t know when.

Before these bastards dare to strike again,
To those not called yet, I give this warning.
Good grief! Not that New Hampshire call again!
I haven’t know peace since I don’t know when.
