I write to inform you of my
– oh, well how to put this delicately?
At first I was smitten, needing, and sure
That you were mine and I’d always be yours.
The thought of you with another – why –
My little heart would pound, tears fill my eyes…
The notion of exclusivity I so had bought;
I was smug in the sureity we’d never cut short
Such a wonderful wisdom, a lesson taught
In every book/song/film that came my way…
Apologies, I digress – I write then, to say –
That since we’ve parted, I just can’t make this stay:
My subscription to your traditional ideals of love has ended, and I do not wish to renew.
All best wishes,
A Girl Who Used To ‘Belong’ To You
