Get You Out Of My Life - Poem by Ramona Thompson

Rewrite of the Jodeci song, All My Life



I pray I never find another lover

As bitter as you

Bitter as you

And I pray that I will never find another lover

As jealous as you

Jealous as you



Boy, you got too damn close to me

Made me start to smother

Too damn close to me

Tried to control

Like you were my father

Too damn close to me

On my skin like a blister

Too damn close to me

You really have become such a bother

You won't let me talk to any other

And for that

This farewell song I must sing



Just got to get you out of my life

Cause I never prayed for someone like you

And I can't believe God

Would let me

Let me end up with someone like you

And so I got to get you out of my life

Cause I never prayed for anyone like you

And I hope one day you will understand

Why I feel as I do

Yes, I pray no longer with my heart

You will screw



I really hope

You're getting this message, baby

Cause I mean it when I say

Never again will I fall in love

With a cheater and a liar like you

You're the mistake I'm thinking of

And so I scream at the dark lord above

For sending me your twisted love

Pray someday you will perish....

    To pray that someone will perish shows a cruel and vicious heart, a little too much evil here for me I'm afraid (Report)Reply

    I do hope that you have got rid of him in a peaceful way. This is after all a lovely poem, well worded
    and excellently rendered. BUT heart wrenching. I like the spontaneous nature the poem is built up.
    CONGRATULATIONS on being chosen as The Member Poem Of The Day. A 10 Full Score and much much more. Success I wish you in meeting the right boy-friend, some foreign blend.
