Yay, I No Longer Love You!

for seventeen years  
i thought about you too much  
even though  
we never spent a lot of time together  
even though you hired small planes  
towing massive banners  
to fly over my neighborhood  
with the embarrassing message  
WENDY, YOU ARE NOT IMPORTANT TO ME!  
 
the fact that i loved you  
and i know it was obvious- i suck at hiding things  
seems to have grossed you out  
and i suppose i get that  
you are intellectual  
and i dropped out of tenth grade  
but - not that you care-  
my manager at Burger King  
happens to truly value me  
 
i'm embarrassed that I shared some of my poetry with you  
i'd think real hard about what I wanted to say  
but I never could much get past roses are red  
violets are blue  
I apologize  
I really do  
 
and even though you're not slim yourself  
perhaps my weight was an issue  
i mean,  
i know when i first met you  
i weighed 417 pounds  
but i starved my way down to 390  
eager to impress you  
and you didn't even notice  
 
and yeah, the BDSM thing was a problem  
i never understood why you were into all that weird stuff  
but still,  
when you wanted to play  
i shouldn't have lit up unfiltered Camels  
and insisted on watching Wheel of Fortune  
or knitting yet another  
holiday sweater for my cat  
 
then there's the fact  
that i am an evil, no good person  
because i told a 'girl'  
who swore she just liked you as a friend  
that i was glad about that  
and then didn't contact her for a while  
 
thank you for not pressing charges  
 
so even though i no longer love you  
I don't hate you  
in fact  
i still like you  
and if i am  
as you say  
-pathetic-  
well  
that's about the only reason why

No, not a 10th grade dropout. I graduated high school at 17. Never weighed 400 pounds either, etc, etc.
