    Four years ago..3 weeks past...you issued to me
    A directive..to lose...destroy....eliminate from my memory
    Any aspect of continuing communication with you
    For me...to make myself..as far as you were concerned
    As scarce as a chicken with an ULTRA-BRITE smile
    To which I heartily concurred..after
    After the fowl **** you pulled!

    It was much easier than I had previously imagined
    For me to forget about the tragedy which had almost
    Consumed me..dressed up like LOVE..but contained
    Within the flesh and sinew...that I came to know as YOU!

    Beyond over you...was the destination I had found myself
    Yes..I had arrived...all vital components in tact....still
    Dignity...check, Heart...check, P...assion for someone else..CHECK!
    On is where I had moved to...until that is....that now fate less day
    The one when you decided to pick up the phone
    To call me...and in your most innocently plaintive tone
    With the pretense of needing to know something irrelevant...
    Of no consequence..and...although I saw through you
    Like a clear day....I told myself..in the spirit of the season
    Buoyed by the knowledge..that others..at this point in time
    Could get past...transgressions..perpetrated upon them
    What kind of person would I be...to hold onto
    With dogged determination...a nightmarish notion
    That will only stunt my personal growth!?

    It was at this point...that I discovered..that when necessary
    One can convince oneself..of some of THE MOST mindless bullspit
    Which can cause one to backslide on a vehement declaration
    An adamant...affirmation..to not ever get bogged down again
    By emotional dependence!!!

    The GLARING RED lights...warning me of impending doom
    Glowed brightly throughout the corridors of my mind
    With which..I had...no doubt..temporarily lost contact!
    What the HELL was I thinking..or was I..I quizzed myself
    And in the meantime...all of your previous antics
    Began arising from the dustbin of my memory
    Manifesting themselves in concocted love coos
    The same kind that you used before..to get you to a position
    Of completing tasks..so that you could spend time
    Elsewhere...with someone ELSE!!!..other than me
    On the phone...on the internet..in actuality....intimately physically
    What...in the name of LOVE....was I thinking?
    Well....as yet...it remains to be seen!!!

    You are so much better than the 'bullshitter's' of this world...be it a woman who is really a girl or whateva...neva, but neva second guess a good decision!

    Blessings On Ya House!

    I've been in this situation before, and I always find that offering no dicsussion or questions is best. Just move on ahead. The struggle for truth and love seems to be so universal, a language all poets speak. Peace.
