To My (Ex) "He`s Just Not That Into You" man

Childish I know, but made me feel better...

You think you`re so cool, and you`re really, really not
You`re in your mid forties, and still smoking pot
You drink every day, and you`re quite often pissed
I really think I can do better then this!

You wear your hair long, because you think that it`s quirky
And the t-shirts you wear? Should only be worn by men under thirty
You snort coke at parties and I`ve known you to `drop an E` in the past
And I really, really don`t like my house smelling of grass!

I could go for a week without hearing from you at all
Then a flurry of texts and I`d be back under your thrall

For over a year this had been going on
And deep inside me I knew that it was wrong
But then this morning you ended it all with a text
And it was obvious then that you couldn`t have cared less

So I`m going to have my little cry, and then let you go
And if you get in touch again, the answer will be NO
So this my final goodbye to you..
You selfish, addictive, vain big pile of poo!

Excellent - luv it :-)

Reading the first few lines I thought you were talking about my own 'adorable' ex ;-)

Seems like you've homed in on his negatives (of which there were seemingly many !!!) you obviously deserve better than this - what a waster.

I thought of this, just now. I've been let down rather badly recentlysad

under a cloak of friendship, sneaked in hope,
clothed in glitter, and sparkling with love
She twirled and she sighed
She smiled and she swooned
You both knew I would fall, as I have done before

You quoted me poetry
And promised me safety, in opening my heart
How you must smile and how cruel you are
To have left me with hope, and her smiling visage
The glitter has gone, a realisation in place
Hope, I know now, was just a mirage.

She is still here, an unwelcome guest
She has dropped all pretence at being my friend
She whispers and makes herself quite at home
Like you, she only cares for herself in the end.

And now I wait, hope egging me on
I want her to leave, I wish she would go,
But until you break silence and call her away
Hope and I are together and I cannot get away.

To change the tempo a little bit:

Now At Liberty

Little white love, your way you've taken;
Now I am left alone, alone.
Little white love, my heart's forsaken.
(Whom shall I get by telephone?)
Well do I know there's no returning;
Once you go out, it's done, it's done.
All of my days are gray with yearning.
(Nevertheless, a girl needs fun.)

Little white love, perplexed and weary,
Sadly your banner fluttered down.
Sullen the days, and dreary, dreary.
(Which of the boys is still in town?)
Radiant and sure, you came a-flying;
Puzzled, you left on lagging feet.
Slow in my breast, my heart is dying.
(Nevertheless, a girl must eat.)

Little white love, I hailed you gladly;
Now I must wave you out of sight.
Ah, but you used me badly, badly.
(Who'd like to take me out tonight?)
All of the blundering words I've spoken,
Little white love, forgive, forgive.
Once you went out, my heart fell, broken.
(Nevertheless, a girl must live.)

Dorothy Parker

Nevertheless, lavenderhoney, a girl must live!

Dust yourself down and get up off the mat. smile

Downs cocktail and shrieks "'tally ho"smile

Continues ironing and watches the technology in the house make a mockery of 24/7 love in the 21 centurysad

Dorothy Parker approves of the first sentence more than the second.

lavenderhoney Sun 16-Mar-14 22:18:56

I know, I love her quotessmile

But I still have to do the bread and butter of life

The honeydew, now that, is different. You only live once. Its not a dress rehearsal.

Thankyou smile He has just contacted me, and am rereading this to strengthen my resolve not to answer :-)

Good luck OP. Since we're in poetic mode, this one by Wendy Cope has snapped me out of more than one unhealthy infatuation:

"Cuddling the new telephone directory
After I found your name in it
Was going too far.

It's a safe bet you're not hugging the phone book
Wherever you are."
