So sorry! But I’m not in the least partial to being used.

So sorry! But I’m not in the least partial to being used.





By Stanley Collymore


Please, don’t play mindless games with my intimate feelings,

as they’re already in a very delicate state of imbalance even

without that state of affairs constantly and confusingly

happening. And if you can’t seriously offer anything

positive to this relationship with me, which you’re

perpetually claiming to be deeply interested in, then honourably

forego whatever it is that you’re actually doing. For in such

decidedly obvious and compromising circumstances: me

supposedly in a meaningful relationship with you but

essentially, as it stands, virtually on my own and,

furthermore, vulnerably facilitating a situation

that your capricious behaviour is routinely

subjecting me to; to be perfectly honest

with you, upon judicious and heartfelt

reflection of this entirely untenable

situation, I’d much prefer - as the

best, most judicious and logical

option left me in these dreary

circumstances - to be freely

and completely left alone.

Author’s Comments:

One of the cruellest things imaginable, and often done �" and I say this both from a personal as well as an objective perspective �" that any human being can inflict on another person is to intentionally set out to convince that hapless individual that the callous perpetrator of what is essentially a heartless and determined lie does love them, when in effect that person already and intensely know that they don’t and, what’s more, have not the slightest intention of ever doing so.

Indeed, it is self explanatory. In the face of manipulation, the only safety lies in breaking it off.
