MR ALL THAT- Rant Against Men

Who the hell do you think you are?
Who give you the right
To behave
Like the rest of the cave men?
I thought you were enlightened
Learned
I thought….
Damn you!
Damn you for wasting my time
My love
My life
On someone like you!

I thought you were made 
With heavenly fibers
With other world cells
That would appreciate the honesty
The devotion
The care
The babying
The being at your beck and call
The moving my schedule around to fit you
The moving my day around to suit you
The moving my life around to accommodate YOU
That you found in me!!!!
I thought....
DAMN!

But you are like the rest
Once you have it all
You take it for granted
Think you are the king of the world
THE MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE
You are just a man
A MAN
A typical MAN

Need the mystery???
The chase????
The need to hunt
To capture your prey
Still burns in your veins?

GO then
Get OUT
Go and hunt
Just don’t expect to come here...tired, weary
And have your meal ready
And your desert to be me
All creamed up
Ready....
To be licked clean...

Need to be treated like dirt???
To want?
To pursue?
Is that why
You came here to end it all?
I’m no longer a challenge for you?
Too much of a commitment involved?
Is your baggage getting in the way?
I could have unpacked it for you
And seen you through

Damn…damn damn damn
I’ll never learn
To hold back
And not give it all away

Now you want to leave???
Yea, it’s been nice
OF COURSE IT’S BEEN NICE, MORON
I gave you my heart and soul
THAT’S EQUIVALENT TO PARADISE

Yes, dear…
You would like to leave?
Can’t give me what I deserve
BLA BLA BLA BLA
Shut up!
LEAVE!
GOOD RIDDANCE!
I won’t grieve
Let me walk you to the door
I gave you all and more
Not because you were all that
But because I’m ALL THAT!
And MORE
That’s the way I love
That’s the way I adore
Go….good luck

When that temptress leaves you high and dry
And you taste the poison in her pie
When you finally come to see
She has the breasts
But NO HEART underneath
You'll remember me…..
Don’t come to this door
JUST LET ME BE!
Don't you DARE go knock on this door
Because, MR ALL THAT!
“LOVE DON’T LIVE ANYMORE.”

Inspired by something someone dear to my heart is going through....

    I had to read this poem. You had a lot of steamy anger to vent. It sure beats putting someone in the hospital and spending time in jail. Getting it off your chest. Good for you. That is something you don't want to hold inside.

    I bow in your foundation cracking reverence. Ah, such power & focus in these lines. A heart scorned will never end well. Wonderful declaration!
