I'm not quick to suppose
That I have control of my life
Much less of yours
But look at how he makes you jump
When pulls your strings
All at once, you so much changed
And I can't believe
The friend I once had to be
This shallow stupid creaure
With too much eye shadow
And not enough clothing
Personally I'd be happy if you were sad again
Because this is what you call "happy"
I must tell you you're truly petty
And your feelings for yourself
They are all that matters
You said that I lost a great friend in you
I lost nothing you know
I'd rather be defined by your hating me
Than ever be a friend to this
YOU are the waste of space
YOU will be wasting away
YOU will rot and die alone
It will not be me no matter what you say
And I've already laughed about the letter you gave me
I felt worse when I failed my driver's test
I promise you this
One day when I am something and you
You are barefoot and pregnant living in Kentucky still
I'll be sitting on Barbara Walter's scented counch
I'll credit you for all my life
I'll tell the world how heartless you are
And I'll write a famous poem for you
Your illegimate children will have to read it in school
And even they will ask "Mommy, is this for you?"
All the "bitterness, boredom, and my ugly face"
I'll say it was from you
You'll go and live
I'll even go so far as to dedicate you something
I'll even go so far as to die
And in my suicide note (to be read by millions of fans)
"If you're looking for someone to blame, look at Marionette."
And how they'll cry and hate you
I know it's petty (just like you)
But not as stupid as your hate letter
Yeah, but hey who uses two interjections in one sentence?
Oh you don't even know what those are
Yes Marionette I don't forgive you
And if you ever need this pathetic girl
I won't be anywhere around
I'll be on a different plane
One where people don't do this
I'LL BE LIVING!

You got yourself another winner here.
I am of course happy that you publish your poems here but hope that you also make an effort to get your work into the print media.
Just keep knocking on some doors, eventually one will open for you.
