Title: The ex-factor

You call me up
day and night
expect me to be kind,
I try my best
to ease the pain
and give
some peace of mind.
You talk
of new found confidence
and hobbies to match,
but as soon as you
fall on your ass
you expect me
there to catch.
Rock climbing
and bungee jumps
are great outdoor pursuits,
bridge jumping
on the other hand
is the meanest

Don't talk to me
with threats of death
it won't make me want you more,
all I want is to get on with life
and end this pointless war.
