Of course I’m fucking hurting

But it wasn’t such a shock

I twigged what was happening

But couldn’t make it stop


Whatever I did or said

Simply added more petrol on the fire

She said it was all about her

I’m not going to call her “Liar”


What I need is some purposeful work

I do not ask for sympathy

But what I definitely do not need

Is patronising guff that calls this an “opportunity”


Of course I’m fucking hurting

Our friendship become much more

But now we’ve drawn a line

I will pick myself up off the floor


n.b. Apart from when I am doing my 21 press-ups each morning. Routines are important at times of heightened emotion.
