The Break-Up Song

On July 28th, 2012 my boyfriend of over a year broke up with me. I was devastated at first, for a long time actually. But then I got inspired and made this little piece of writing up. I combined words from different songs with my own to write The Break-Up Song. And now it's been over a year since that happened and I couldn't be better! So here it is:

Hang on, just hang on for a minute, I have something to say. 1 I just want to say that you’re a jerk. You’re worse than a jerk, but since I don’t cuss, I won’t say it. A tall drink of water and a pretty little thing, were kissing on the corner in the pouring rain; turned my head to get a better view, oh Lord help me, it was you.2 This is why you’re a jerk. Because you cheated on me. You found some other girl, that you don’t even love, to fill the void in your life and to fulfill your needs and desires. So good for you. Way to go. You became a player! Congratulations! You should be so proud of that, to let your favorite person go in favor of your own selfishness. To think that I loved you. Boy that was a mistake, the biggest one ever. But I won’t be making that same mistake again; especially because we are never ever ever getting back together. 3 Big bold words I know. But it’s true that we’re not getting back together because you lie like a priceless Persian rug on a rich man's floor... it just comes so dang natural to you, the way you lie. 4 I want a guy to be the type to say if I was your boyfriend I'd never let you go. 5 Now that is a true boyfriend, one that wouldn’t lie or cheat. And to that mystery guy, I know you’re out there, but I just haven't met you yet. 6

When this publishes the font is going to be so weird and I have no idea how to fix it! So I apologize for the squished words!
