Mr. Bad.

You pushed me away,
And now I am going to live my own life
Right under your nose.
And I hope that you notice every smile
That someone else makes me laugh.
I am going to be free of your demons.
I am going to laugh every time I see you,
And be so pleased that I
Saw the worst bits before we were married,
Like once you said we would be.
Remember that?
Oh my poor poor Mr Misunderstood.

You acted as if every word were a drain on your strength.
Nothing I tried was good enough.
But now it is a different world.
Now I am telling you that you are no good.
Now you can taste my cruelty,
My poor poor Mr Misunderstood.

You guessed wrong if you thought
I would always dance to your tune.
Now I'll like something else.
And listen when I tell you, you are no good
My once upon a time love.
My poor poor poor Mr Misunderstood.

Thanks for commenting Nigel 💕

But, as I have never stayed successful in love, and quite often never even begun successfully, let alone stayed that way.. well, because of all that I get to the point where I have to assume a few conclusions (that I'd rather not type, at least, not in prose).

Thanks also to everyone who clicked 'Like' for this poem 💐

You have left him with nothing
but the regret of letting your love go.
