It happened all over again
And a million “I-told-you-so’s” have been thrown at me
Well, life’s a never ending learning process
And loving is just part of it
Going through a heartache has never been easy for me
At the peak of each pain, my friends have seen it all
So much so that they’d be only too glad
Each time I declare that I’m over the pain
I’ve shown to all and sundry that I cope beautifully
Thank goodness for killer schedules
I usually don’t have time anymore to sulk
I have indeed moved on
Well until love came knocking back again
Not that I was too naive not to see familiar signs
I was just too in love with the idea of falling in love again
Loving is a wonderful feeling
It gives you a different high every time
And love is always sweeter the second time around
Or is it?
When the cracks started to show
God knows I’ve tried so hard to work things out
There were moments when I get so stressed out
That I just wanted to end it right there and then
But the better of me prevailed
I hang on even it if hurts so much
Stressful as it was, I eventually snapped and gave up
Surprisingly I was calm and unperturbed
Accused of being bitter, I was more circumspect than angry
In past break ups I was quick to accept the blame
This time, I will just forgive myself for loving and trusting too much
No blaming. No regrets. The end.
Have I moved on? I am working on it.
Although it’s easier now, I still worry.
Bullshit! But I do worry.
And that my faithful readers is what I’m afraid of
But like any wounded warrior
I, too, must learn from mistakes past…
That should weigh more in the future
I abhor being told a million “I-told-you-so’s”
I want to finally see the end of it
