Cheater, Cheater, Pumpkin Eater

To the boy who swept me off my feet in less than a day, 

I just want to say,

It's so hard to put my feelings at bay

When I have to see you everyday

From now 'til May.

So tell me your secret way,

How did you get over it so quickly when my whole world turned to gray?

I want to hate you and just breakaway, 

But we both know that I'll stay.


I'm just confused, where is your Scarlett Letter?

I have all the pain and you get all the pleasure. 

Can't be a chooser when I'm just a beggar. 

But I won't be sorry for wanting your attention when I know no one will love you better.

Now I'm left alone and bitter, 

As you came in and left quickly, leaving behind a world full of terror. 


What you don't know, 

Or maybe you do and don't care about about being a hoe, 

Is I am not alone in this life and I am getting married tomorrow. 

Sure blame it on me, but you never said no. 

I am broken and finally letting it show, 

Unfortunately it was to you, because you'll only use it as ammo. 


When the Church bells ring,  I cry.

The thought of wanting to see you at the alter makes me want to die. 

You didn't deserve to know me like that, and you definitely don't deserve to make me the bad guy.

I told you I'd take our day to my grave, but that was a lie.

You don't deserve a lot of things, but with her I must classify: 

I said to her, "I kissed a boy and I didn't like it," as I could still imagine your touch giving me the ultimate high.


Okay so I lied a little...okay maybe a lot,

But she is my world and you are not. 

You were my past disguised as my future trying to rework my life's plot,

But I'm not falling for it this time; this battle has already been fought. 

Many lessons to me you have taught,

Though my love you have no longer got. 


Through the lack of feelings, I have found an appreciation for you.

I want to say thank you for helping me reach an emotional breakthrough.

I'm happy now and it is true.

You've given me a clue

As to who 

I should be and who I should be with and that is not you. 


Please don't miss me, 

Now that I am finally free.

I'm no longer amazed at your audacity 

To sleep with someone else's girlfriend and then be

So cocky. 

It disgusts me so let me be free to find my glee because I've found my one fish in the entire sea.
