Goodbye, My Dear Damn Boy [just A Lie] - Poem by Fallen Too Far

So now you've gone.
not only because I asked but
because you had another young girl
waiting to love and be used by you
what a waste of paper i think
now that i look back
on the tear-stained note
or book really
that I sent you

your brother, darling silly boy
said i broke your heart
well, who can believe him
but for his empty words
and laughing lies to pass time

but, dear boy, this is your lucky day
because see, i let you go
like a balloon on a funeral day
just like that you drifted further
and still further from my mind
and i didn't mind
(save the empty ache in my chest
that comes when a piece of my
very Love is ripped and shredded
with anxiety and unknown hurt)

so i let you go, and let you know
just out of consideration
for your love Also
you recieved it with open arms
and a sneaking carelessness
covered in regret
and fake sincerety in hope of returning
to the old way

well it is no more
and i say damn you with a smile
because the whole thing was quite silly
to be honest
i blush to think that it happened at all
but it's over with so there

so walk your way and i'll walk mine
you with your baby girls, fresh from the cradle
and your hermit like ways
and your unchanging words
and freshly dead lies
and your naive mind that i somehow missed
the second time around

so, dear damn boy
i end this tune
on a rather sour note
but i shall try to justify it by saying
I wish you luck
send me news if you want
but i do not prefer to see you again
for a very long time
