Hello – Goodbye!

Three little words

“Time and space”

Justify immediate exits

With a touch of grace

 

“It’s about me…not you”

Another favourite – so true

To soften the blow

‘Cause they think you’re psycho

 

“Want to take a break”

Knowing fully well

There’s no chance in hell

To return for a retake

 

Probably the funniest of ‘em all

“Need to focus on my career”

Ingeniously invented

To cushion your fall

 

But the best saved for the end

Is when they continue to play pretend

“Someday …I’ll be back”

Keeping false hopes alive and on track

 

Cute brown puppy dog eyes

Would it be illogical?

To not read between the lines

Believe it’s the truth and not sugar coated lies

 

You had me at Hello!

Convincing me friendship was worth a try

But why do I secretly suspect?

You chose an early Goodbye!
