Love is a dog from hell. Bukowski.

You Lost a Friend

You just lost a friend

When you lied to me

You just lost a friend

When you were remiss

About how much I really love you

You just lost a friend

You’ll never win back.

It’s your loss

And I never want to hear from you again

It’s the bitter end

And we’ll never pretend

To be friends again.

I don’t want to hear

Another word from you

How can I still

Be your friend?

If you still pretend

To be friends again

Or to love me?

All you want to do

Is break my heart again

I never want to hear another word from you

And I never want to hear another lie.

Bukowski was right, Craig. Love in the wrong hands - some love to play mind games. They think what they bring to the table excuses their hormonal behaviour. They're feral creatures. Friend or lover - they will betray you. It's a love/hate thing, forever going round in circles.

Broken hearts make the best poetry. It hurts, but something comes out of it you couldn't envisage. Anyway, I love her and probably always will. Yeah, she'll break my heart a few more times, but love is blind and I will always forgive her. I'm lucky to have known her all these years even if I never see her again. Love is blind.
