A little somethin about an old flame who attempts to enter the picture every couple of clock work

Like clock work....

Appear to make an appearance unwarranted

Thinking that the drive bys might justify your past still recognizable

Undeniable I am I know

But you and the truth of it all need to come as one...

Two months flown by, you still try to make up for lost time I've never paid attention to

When I said never again I meant this was the end

Our union dismantled two years prior

A day of joy and relevation, no more false accusations no more lies to depend on no more you...

But every two to three months you reappear like clock work, like orbital rotation, like your presence was requested

So you small talk just to feel me out, to hear if I have anything positive to say

I entertain the game and reconsider the old flame until you get too personal and behave like a an ex boyfriend

Our existence is not existent since 2007 but you convince yourself otherwise

Why lie to yourself.... is the new young woman in your life aware that she has an untrustworthy individual on her hands

You want me to extend a hand and shake yours in the name of forgiveness and I laugh

You must not get it...

Your reappearing acts have no affect on the determing factor I've already enacted...

Can I give anymore grave detail about this situation that I can't allow to continue to linger in the back of our minds?

So two months from now will you call or text again under false pretinces like clock work?

Or will you finally face the brutality of the reality you are responsible for, it has to be accounted for someday soon

Cause you and I are of no more to explore or adore no there's no more

The conclusion was not an illusion

I agreed you obliged, I tried you denied, we fought I cried, you cheated yourself out of a fulfilling life but remember you chose that course out of weakness...

And like clock work I'll continue to reject your unwelcomed entrance

I just love the fire and passion that you express in your poems.You are the type of person that doesn't take any crap from anybody and I like that.Your ex should just move on with his love.He should just be a magician and make himself disappeared instead of coming back like a fly on a hot summer day.Its good that you are moving on with your life.Keep doing your thing :-)take care

Cool writing. I like that you are determined, and he is out in the cold. This is the saga of many, however....too many less courageous and wise as you. Keep writing. Now..go study! lindalaw
