You Can Burn My Letters


Don't use my words against me.
Who do you think you are?
Just because you were my friend
You think you're above par?

Don't use my words against me.
Yes, they were for you.
But now they don't mean anything
Only that we're through.

Don't use my words against me.
You hold the ones I rue.
And now I burn your letters
Because I can't burn you.

Don't ask me to remember
The words I wrote for you.
You were my friend and now you're not
It's simple - I am through!

Don't use my words against me.
At one time they were true.
And you can burn my letters,
Because I can't burn you.

For "once upon a time" is gone
And I am done with you.

I had a friend for whom I wrote a poem and he tried to use it against me when we were no longer friends. This was my revenge.

    Thank you Kirti! I certainly agree that this is a healthy and fun way to get my revenge :) No one gets hurt yet I get to express how I feel.

    Don’t use my words against me.
    You hold the ones I rue.
    And now I burn your letters
    Because I can’t burn you.
