It's Not You, It's Me

ďIím going to have to return you to the used Girlfriend lotĒ,
She managed to inject just the right note of regretfulness into the statement.
ďWrong? No, of course youíve done nothing wrong,
Honestly, Iíve been more than happy with your performance.
Yes, your chassis is showing signs of wear, thatís only natural at your age
But overall, for an older model, youíve run really well
Comfortable, reliable with a heap of zip under the hood
Surprisingly acceleration actually, go to whoa in no time at all
Though, I rarely made use of that feature, did I?
I probably should have done some research I guess
And selected a model that didnít run quite so hot.
But then, I guess sometimes thatís half my problemí
I tend to do things on impulse and you looked so fine on the showroom floor
I just had to pick you up and take you home, there and then
Come to think of it, Iíve had the same trouble with three previous purchases
So, come on, donít take it so personally
My friends, will probably be a somewhat disappointed
They seemed to like it when I came around to show you off
Oh, for goodness sake, stop asking me what you did wrong,
The statement was made with the thinly disguised impatience
that parents of all small children sometimes display
when asked Ďwhyí for the umpteenth time that day.
ďLook, try and understand, itís not you, itís me.Ē
She threw the line down with the bravado of besieged Monopoly property holder
Mortgaged to the hilt, but flourishing a Get Out of Jail Free card
No doubt rationalising that if no sentence has to be served
Then surely no crime was committed in the first place
I guessed I was supposed to take it as legal tender
In exchange for dreams dreamed and hopes tentatively allowed to take root
And accept that both parties to a legal contract
had upheld their end of the bargain and were now free to move on
ďHow many times do I have to say itís not your fault?
Itís mine, mea culpa, my bad, you know?
The goods were satisfactory in every way but Iíve simply changed my mind,
I donít want you anymore
What else do you expect me to say?Ē

I love this....(the style in which it was written, not your terrible experience). It always seems so easy for someone to be so hurtful when they aren't feeling what you're feeling, should be a crime, instead it's just another cruel facet of human nature that will never recieve the punishment it so deserves. Until enough time passes, I hope you take some small comfort in writing out the hurt, I will always be here to read. Arrow

Sad Thanks Ladies, 'preciate it.

You wouldn't think the Used Girlfriend lots would be open the day after Xmas? Seems to me trade-ins and returns should be restricted till after the holiday season ends at least Sad

Nah, you arent being callous... just truthful.

Yeah, seems I stiill write best from great angst it appears. This one was a train wreck that no one, least of all me, saw coming so I am still hobbling a little.
