Hope you don’t mind me contacting you, but I just wanted to say good-bye properly.
It really is a shame how things turned out for us, our relationship lasted so long and was a huge part of both of our lives, that to end so suddenly and over such a petty issue is really quite tragic.
I mean really?
How could you end it over something so small when you had done only the same thing the night before and I made no issue of it?
Okay, so you say that it was the straw that broke the camel’s back, I can understand that, you had reached your tipping point.
But personally I think that you were just looking for excuses.
In actual fact, I’m pretty certain of it.
I just wanted to say that I really did love you. We came along way since those early days, crossed many hurdles when people thought that we weren’t suited and we wouldn’t make it .. We almost did.
However relationships need effort on both sides, unfortunately it seemed to be me that had to compromise all the time.
Which is very unfair, wouldn’t you agree?
Isn’t hindsight a wonderful thing?
In fact, although it hurt that you were so nasty to me, that you used me and threw me away like yesterday’s underwear. Now that a few months have passed I’m feeling pretty good. The weight has been removed from my shoulders and the blind-fold from my eyes.
It’s great to be living my own life again, seeing my friends without you constantly contacting me and demanding to know where I am and what I’m doing.
It’s great to be able to laugh and dance and even get a little drunk without knowing that I have to call you when I get home.
I’m loving living in my own house, sitting on my sofa and watching what I want on tv and not having what you want forced upon me.
Okay, I know you made a bit of an effort, I appreciate that, but I was a guest, a visitor, it was never going to work. Besides I hate Come Dine With Me and Don’t Tell The Bride and all that other mindless sh1t that you watch.
It’s also great not to have to keep reassuring you about your looks and being unable to offer constructive comment without having my head bit off.
So for the record, your ass is big and your tits are droopy .. Not that I would ever have told you as I loved you for more than your ass and tits.
I hear through the grape-vine that your seeing someone else, that sleaze-bag that you always said you hated, the one that cheated on his wife/your friend … how low can you go?
Yes I know he’s single and so are you .. you’re entitled to do what you want .. that’s fine by me.
I will confess to being curious to whether the two of you had got together before we split up, but I won’t ask, because you’d only lie.
I’ve decided that as I’ll never know the truth, I won’t lose any sleep on it .. and wish you well.
Just remember, once a cheat always a cheat .. but at least you know what you’re dealing with.
I honestly hope that it works out for you.
Anyways, all good with me, I’ve met someone too, an old friend got back in touch and things are going well.
The timing wasn’t right for us first time round but now that our circumstances have changed, we are having a great time of it.
It’s early days, but I’m a happy boy.
All the best, I won’t be in touch again.
Hey you, yeah you.
If this stimulated an emotional response with you, made you laugh, cry, angry or empathise then fantastic, I’m doing my job.
Just don’t confuse my writing with the real me.
Yes the above is based on fact. But so was yesterday’s poem. I write based on life experience as I’m sure most bloggers, authors and wannabe-authors do.
For me writing is cathartic, a therapeutic outlet of things I might never say.
Today’s is based on fact, but the email was never written never mind sent.
Wouldn’t it be good to write to your ex and tell them what you think?
That you’ve moved on and don’t want, need or love them any more?
Or would it be better just to break all ties and not give a fuck?
Personally I choose the second option.
Just for the irony ….
