Too many love poems are about revenge.
Look at me
Blah blah blah
Whoop dee doo…
If you’re writing a poem to someone you used to be in love with, trying to convince them how happy you are now that they’re not in your life, you are obviously still hooked on that person.
If you were really over them, you wouldn’t care if they know or not.
You don’t try to inspire any sort of reaction from that person because you will have developed a serene sensation of indifference- like a callous after you’ve burnt.
You can rhyme your bitter heart away but I ain’t buying it.
In the words of Yogi Berra,
It ain’t over til it’s over.
