Dethroning the Ex

You’re lifeless, listless, sleeping all the time Believe me, this was no victimless crime You cooked all of his meals and cleaned his house You surely deserve better than this louse Raise your hands in thanks that he didn’t stay The brightest path to healing is to pray Buy yourself something special – a new dress? When someone asks you to dance, just say yes It’s time you planned a Caribbean cruise Vent through poetry; awaken your muse Lean on your friends, we’re always here for you Come with us, have some laughs, we’ll pull you through Should you see your ex walking all alone You’ll know this would-be king has been dethroned
