Jayden's poem of the day - Lets go over it all again

Lets go over it all again

 

Some people are like that

They split up and then they think;

Hey, maybe we haven't hurt each other to the uttermost.

Let's meet up and have a drink

 

Lets go over it all again

Lets rake over the dirt.

Let me pick that scab of yours

Does it hurt?

 

Lets go over what went wrong -

How and why and when.

Lets go over what went wrong

Again and again.

 

We hurt each other badly once.

We said a lot of nasty stuff

But lately I've been thinking how

I didn't hurt you enough.

 

Maybe there's more where that came from,

Something more malign.

Let me damage you again

For the sake of auld lang syne.

 

Yes, let me see you bleed again

For the sake of auld lang syne.

Shortly after my ex-wife and I divorced over her inability to keep her legs closed she actually had the nerve to call me and ask if we could try again. I told a friend of mine about it and he asked me the following question:

 

"Lets say you want a glass of milk. You go to the fridge, take out the carton, pour it, and then realize that the milk is spoiled. Do you put the milk back in the fridge hoping it will get better? No. You throw it out and get a fresh carton. Same with bad relationships."

 

I could not argue the point.
