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.

I was inspired a bit by Part of Me by Katy Perry, I might change this and turn then into song lyrics.

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!

Don't ever put anything on paper that you don't believe in. Don't write just to be writing. It's worse then merely saying something because the printed word reaches so many. Always remember that, Beany.

very interesting way of writing.

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.
