Cutting Ties with Your Ex: A Poem

Updated on December 4, 2013

A Poem


I’m too tired for this today.

I have no words to say

all the things I need to.


Let’s not begin again.

I don’t want my head to spin.

This raised tone that drones on and on,

us talking sounds like a skipping song.


There’s too much tension from where we’ve come.

You say it’s love, I say you’re wrong.

We’re too attached with disconnect.

I can’t stand it. Let me collect


my sanity that I’ve lost

at the cost of depleting pride.

I’ve stayed with you though it kills inside.

No guts to leave, so I hide.


It’s not healthy, how we relate.

We love as strong as we hate.

So I think It’s time I say,

“We both should go our separate ways.”

      Thanks Moms, Yeah the second picture is me, a few years old though. Glad you enjoyed the read, this is an older one I thought I'd share with my most recent... She's a Supernova.

      Very nice as usual Brian. The second picture, is it you? Finally a face to the name? I never understood why people delay in letting go what does not suit them. Why is it so hard to end something that is no good. I am not a quitter but I am not a settler either.

      Always nice to read you friend.

      So many stay in bad relationships because they are scared to be alone or they are waiting for the other partner to say that they are leaving.

      Voted up and awesome.

      Let only the sacrifice that you voluntarily make for your overall benefit , be the only entity ,given the green light to to sometimes leave your energy spent.

      There are no guidelines that says when you are tired , keep going.

      Tiredness in one of living's greatest enemy, it's the living brother of death itself.

      Never let it get too close to often , never make excuses for tiredness, like because!

      When you are tired , do everything in your power as soon as possible to get out of that ZONE!

      Bless.

      Well Verita, I've had this one sitting in a microsoft word document for almost a year now. I never thought it was worth publishing, but because of your rave reviews I can see I was wrong. Thanks so much, makes me feel it was worth writing. I figured some could relate. Take care.

      Madmilker you almost made my appendix burst with how hard you had me laughing. I don't know what George Dickel #12 is, but I can only hope it's some sort of booze. I took notes. I'll let you know if it turns that song straight... Cheers!

      I know what you mean.

      I got up at ten after four this morning...

      made a pot of coffee...

      walked out to the hen house and woke up the rooster...

      and as I was walking back to the house...

      I said...

      Only an O'fart would of had to have done that....

      LVidoni5...

      one jigger of warm George Dickel #12

      one teaspoon of honey

      a pinch of ginger

      mix well and swallow....

      and that song stops skipping...

      oh! sugar the pill of life in the morning....

      and those words will come to you.

      Golly!

      it was a purdy day today...

      the Lord turned the light switch on for me...

      and I live through it...

      life can't get no better than that....

      Wow, Brian. This is good...I mean REAL good. I could feel the pain deep within, killing me, like it used to.

      You're simply AWESOME! And I like those pics too :D

      Up, up and away!

      Best Wishes, Verita
