Enough! - Poem by Dean Meredith

I don't want your insincere words
I don't want photos of living
Now that we're dead
I don't want memories
All I want is to forget
There comes a time
When patience wears thin
Like a flattened coin
On a railway track
Like a derailment
There comes a time
When enough is enough
No you never loved me
I was just an escape
A convenient distraction
A shiny new toy
A sure cure for boredom
You liked my lifestyle
Wanted a sugar daddy
A quick fix
A bit of attention
An ego boost
You bought my dreams
When I would have given
Them to you for nothing

Bit of harmless fun
Someone to fill your void
No Peter Perfect
Not even sane
That shrink, Violet
Seemed to understand
I was lonely
And you were there
I was mistaken when
I thought you cared
We are who we are &
Do what we think we must
I cross my wires
As a fool crosses his legs
I wanted to believe & thought
I could make you love me
But I was wrong so wrong &
Now I'm one sorry sucker
Miserable to have loved & lost
Life goes on …
For the rest of you
But my clock has stopped
Battery's flat
Tick … nothing
What I need is a new AA
What I need is a jump start
What I need is someone else
