Please don't -
I gave you another chance.
And there's no going back this time.
See, it's eleven days into January -
So I fear,
We now must bow to the inevitable.
Sadly, that means,
Go our separate ways,
So, goodbye then.
And how I tried my best to get along with you,
You know I did,
I did try,
And just like the last time,
I promised - again - to do things your way,
Because - in your blurb - that word - "commitment",
Would soon reap its amazing self-evident reward -
A shining "golden hello",
That would sing for itself,
Without appearing to try.
How you never mention,
The attendant pain.
It's now painfully, painfully obvious,
You don't understand my complex needs;
The resolution I made with you,
With my heart and soul,
I now realise,
Was not meant to be taken on,
Quite so literally.
Consider me no longer at your side,
We're sadder but wiser,
I'm a lover, not an exerciser,
Lateral thigh trainer,
