Fifty Ways

"Fifty ways to leave your lover"
is such a sad song to sing
fifty ways to break her heart
too many ways to create misery
you wish you knew a better way

I love five/ a new five letter word Acrostic Contest.

    I guess if they still love you there is no good way? [though I have known men to be so miserable to you, they forced YOU into leaving them! ] Congrad's on your win! Light & Love

    That is a sad commentary on men. Hopefully that has only been a limited example of how you have witnessed men behaving.

    hey , richard. I enjoyed this one. I sure do remember this song from so long ago!! I always found that song to be rather funny instead of sad! congrats in my contest.

    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 9/15/2013 7:19:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I found it sad as well.

    Unfortunately there is no easy way, song is playing in my head right now, funny how in the song he is asking a woman about the fifty ways,which poses the question do woman have more ways to end it then men?.....LOL. Great write Rick. Hugs

    Probably, women are very creative. Nowadays they will probably just text the guy.

    Hadn't heard that song in years ... first thing I thought, after I smiled, was "Get a new plan Stan, don't try to be coy Roy"....a very enjoyable and creative acrostic that filled my head with so many things :)

    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 9/5/2013 7:43:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    That's great! Glad I could bring some music to your day.
  1. Date: 9/4/2013 2:07:00 PM

    It should say "50 ways to (please) your lover." That would be more pleasant. Nice write!

    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 9/5/2013 7:45:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    That sounds like a lot more fun. I only know about 30 ways. You'll have to send me a few pointers*lol*

    Ha ha, glad to entertain!

    The song, if I remember correctly, doesn't give very good options... to me the list was uncaring (just hop on the bus, gus.... don't need to discuss much... etc.. lol) Yes very sad indeed. Nice acrostic, I think it will do very well in the contest.

    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 9/3/2013 11:09:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thanks Becca. I have been on the receiving side of those 50 ways and it aint much fun. I have also done the leaving and it was always difficult to find the right way.
  1. Date: 9/3/2013 5:06:00 AM

    Wonderful! You exposed the sadness within the song with the catchy, upbeat tune.

    Becoz it's always difficult to get a true lover..but easy to lose .....people don't value for true love...( telling u from my experience :(

    Thanks Shadow. I can always use a bit of luck.

    Such is the common tactic from humanity's sheep where they play detective in search for mistakes of another person's heart rather than cherishing the beauty of their heart. Great piece.

    I agree. The only sub-category for pain, is time. How long will it last. I prefer good outcomes over "lesser of two evils". Or, in this case, 50 evils. :)
    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 9/2/2013 6:07:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thanks Drake, maybe they came up with fifty ways in hopes of finding the way that would cause the least amount of pain. Personally I think that would be impossible, the pain is always felt.

    I heard this song before and your take on the theme is mellow and enduring... paul simon will be proud, rich... well done; so unique! !..:) huggs

    I forgot who wrote the song, thanks for the reminder.
