Good Riddance

Good riddance to you,
Your immoral and cruel jokes,
Will harm me no more.

Your callousness, cruel,
Transgressed the bounds of cruelty,
You are inhumane.

You called me a game,
You knew not of compassion,
You slayed empathy.


You called me a book,
Then teared out every last page,
I was just garbage.

First I thought you sweet,
Now I know you are sour,
You call me poison.

Good riddance to you,
I know that I must go now,
You cannot linger.

You're a fantastic writer. This is really touching and pretty, and I feel that I can really relate. Keep writing, and good luck on your future writing endeavors!

This reminds me of my ex. This poem is very well-written, and I like the emotion in it; it should be published in the magazine. You should definitely turn this into song lyrics.
