Years ago I used to write limericks to make my friends laugh about our escapades. I got to thinking about stuff and came up with this poem. It’s a bit raw so hope no one is offended. Im no poet but I did make myself laugh. It’s called “no more”
The bruises have faded
The cuts are all gone
Reflecting on life and the things that he’d done
Now all lives are different- this might not ring true
But here is my list of “no more” just for you:
No more making dinner that goes in the bin
No more shouting matches and making a din
A lovely clean toilet, no p*ss on the seat
No more skiddy undies
No more rancid feet
No more criticizing or made to feel bad
No more endless lectures – he’s actually mad
No more messy kitchen and pots in the sink
No more morning f*rts (oh my god did they stink)
I buy what I want now, it makes me feel good
I’ll start to go out – no more stuck in the mud
No more tesco face cream I bought for two fifty
It’s posh stuff for me – I refuse to be thrifty
Now seriously ladies, we’ll have our new life
And we won’t give a t*ss if he finds a new wife
Because WE are the BEST and we’ll get what is due
Be good to yourself now and look after YOU

Great poem and made me laugh!!
“No more endless lectures- he’s actually mad” made me laugh out loud as it is something I’ve often thought in the aftermath !

I loved this, thank you for sharing. It’s funny how artistic we all are in our own ways. I too have taken to writing poetry and am looking into creative writing classes. Watch out for our books eh?😊

Thanks for bringing a smile to my fave tonight. I have an ever growing mental list of ‘stupid’ things I can do now…now to mush feel brave enough to do it!

That was beautiful!!
A standing ovation from us!… I do love a poem I must say.. however, the one I wrote directly related to my experience was more somber.. and a part of a therapy exercise (write to your former or future self)… here is goes (ahem):
Dear to my future self
I trust you’re doing well,
I often wonder how you’d be in the future place we dwell.
There are many hopes I have for you, ones I know you possess
Like courage; passion; kindness; love; gifts that are so blessed.
I know it hasn’t been easy this journey between me and you,
But remember, I never gave up faith in who we’ll grow into.
Right now, I feel we have walked in shoes, from babe, to girl, to woman,
But I for one never gave up hope,
After all we are just human
We’ve had our moments you and I,
Days so dark, so sullen,
But as a phoenix we arise, facing all our villains.
I hope you move past shadows now, not just shadows of your mind,
And found the people in the world that are beautiful and kind.
I hope you finally found your soul, no longer shall you roam
A life that shouts out to you now;
‘YOU are LOVED, and WELCOME home’!
This is a letter, I do digress, that has such meaning, has such depth,
And in its finality I do draw breath, from the former girl I knew!
Sadly, we shall forever recall, what we can’t undo
But always remember… you should ALWAYS be LOVED by YOU!!
