A Not So Fond Farewell

Look who showed up at my front door,Sad-Man

I’m wondering what possibly for.

You’re looking ragged and beat,

being on your own hasn’t been so sweet.

It’s funny how life revolves,

the hard times, pain and sacrifice it involves,

that’s just mentioning a few.

Stand on your own, and do what you have to do,


I still  do have some sympathy,

though I doubt you’d have the same for me,

you never gave a damn.

I don’t know what brought you back,

you’re  as quiet as a mouse and meek as a lamb.

The shell was bound to crack,two-pieces-of-brown-egg-shell-on-a-green-background

forget and forgive,

live and let live

Pick up where we left off,  that’s your intention,

it’s worthy of a prize, I’ll give you honorable mention.

You had me at your mercy so long,

but right is right, and wrong is wrong.

Too many bridges burned,bridge-burn

but now you’ve had a change of heart, now you’re concerned.

As I recall,

when you left it wasn’t such a fond farewell.

No, not at all,

you told me to go to hell.

Those were some of your kind words of farewell,

what did you expect from me now, oh well!

This time it’s my turn to have my say,

this is not going to be a fond farewell.stock-photo-couple-saying-goodbye-before-car-travel-holding-hands-through-the-window-257216164 girl-leaving-alone-boy

This may come as a bombshell,

I don’t care where you go; go away.

There’s no way I’d put myself through that again,

I’m not giving in, after where I’ve been.

There’s no more to tell,

have a fond farewell.

The spell you cast over me,

at last,  of it, I am free.
