I gave you three chances
And you screwed up each one.
You won't get a fourth chance
I told you, we're done.

Do you think I'll give in?
Do you think that we'd last?
Well this time you're wrong;
I've learned from the past.

You cheated every time;
Said you made a big mistake.
Now I see beyond your lies
I know you are a fake.

Don't think of what you want,
This time think about my needs.
I need someone that's true
And who cares when my heart bleeds.

I won't give you another try,
Why won't you get a clue?
You're not getting another chance;
Get the hint, this time we're through.

Anytime you try to win everything, you must be willing to lose everything. -Larry Csonka

Great poem, I too am the culprit of forgiving when I never should have

"Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage."

Ya, I know how that whole story goes. Good thing your letting him go. I tried to make it work a few too many times, then after I had almost taken my own life, I saw that i didn't need him, or anyone who would treat me like that. Nice poem, I'm sure that so many of us can relate.

~The price of finding love is to eventually lose it. When I wish on a falling star, I wish not for material goods but to show kindness to others and be content with what the world may offer me~
