Breaking up with someone who you planned an imaginary future with

Just plain stinks; there's no way around it

No eloquent word to describe the brutality of it all

As time goes by, the hurt won't be so wicked and head splitting

In the meantime, take your time and don't hurry up

Once you get over the idea of being dumped by your last partner

Let it wash over you that you don't have to answer to anyone

Sure, it would be nice to have a companion in your life

Snuggle with on the couch on very cold nights

That's the beauty of dark blue flannel sheets in your bedroom

Do the trick just as well without someone hogging all the covers

Having to untuck the bottom part of the sheets

Because they're too tall in fit in your queen sized bed

Able to eat as much rainbow sherbet as my stomach can tolerate

Make my pizza however I choose to make it in the oven

Pepperoni and mushrooms were the ticket for this lady

Rules were made to be broken when you're single

Have no need to follow some proper etiquette since you're unattached

Ok, you shouldn't have to swing from the rafters, but you get the picture

You don't have to answer to a potentially controlling partner

Looking to put you in some stereotypical box or role that you should play

Being yourself was just the ticket to get through this life

Playing pretenses made things all the more unbearable

For two years, you worked unbelievably hard to please them

And it got you a metaphorical slap in the face

No more playing by the rules when it comes to dating

Won't pretend to be someone else to secure a relationship

Have no need to settle for less anymore

Dumbed myself down to make my former partner feel smarter

In reality, it wasn't remotely the case

Sure, they had some level of intelligence to contend with

Not quite in the same stratosphere as your own

May sound a touch arrogant but it was true regardless

Your ex-flame was never the studious type

You, on the other hand, devoured anything in order to learn

Keep that spirit going now that you're on your own

Find a new project and tackle it head on

Face a long held fear in order to evolve as a person

Enjoy your independence while you can, because you will move on

It's only a matter of time.

Enjoy your favorite pizza now that you're single.
Enjoy your favorite pizza now that you're single.

      Yes, you will move on.

      Only this time you will not bend over backwards to please someone.

      This time you will be keeping more of yourself.

      You can cook occasionally...just not everyday. You don't need to make it his way...if he wants it that way he can cook.

      We tend to do too much for men and we are left unappreciated.

      Then once they are gone they realize there is no one there to do all these things thst he thought just magically keeping the house clean and doing the laundry.

      Great write.
