A Lover's Apology

Tell me, Darling,

Despite the pain,

Before you

Leave with what's-her-name,

How did we

Come to this?

How did we

Come to this?



Last night--

So bittersweet;

Champagne

Between your feet...

I loved you,

Yes I loved you still

As you were so gracefully

Being ill...



Our three weeks together

Will live forever

Inside my heart.



Tell me, Darling,

Despite the tears,

And the ruin

Of both of our careers,

How did we

Come to this?

How did we

Come to this?



Tell me, Sweetheart,

Before you go

Honey, please

I've got to know

Did you love me?

Do you love me still?

Or would you rather

Cut me dead where I stand?



Our three weeks together

Will live forever

Inside my heart

Like a sado-masochistic Disneyland;

I'm sorry

I'm so truly sorry

It's come to this.

Dont you hate it when it goes flat?

I guess the most anyone can do, is recognise love while it lasts, enjoy, then let it go with no regrets. That way lies wisdom...

Shoot, three weeks is just a long one nighter. Ha.

Shay, I did laugh at the second stanza - from champagne to vomit definitely sums up a lot of super short relationships.

Those crazy crazy flings. This one had me in mind of an indiscretion gone very public and very embarrassing.

Three weeks can be a long one-nighter, but make an impact all the same... This reminds me too much of my last relationship bust... :o(

Very expressive... all the right questions asked...

Three weeks and lots of impact, it seems...

Remind me to tell you about the summer on 1999...this sums it up perfectly.

But I'm not! :) Get over it, already! :))

sad, sad tale there sweetheart.

it's true, you know. One person is always more in love than the other...

hmmph... and where do we fit into it all??? The lover or the loved?

If only you would learn to share,
the two of you could hold my hair,
and it wouldn't have to come to this.

I hit the line about "Our three weeks together" and put coffee through my nose.

So who rented the U-Haul?
