Note to self

The beauty of hindsight;

  1. Do not attempt to rehash all that went wrong in your relationship, with an matter how amicable said breakup was, believe this is one conversation that will go nasty quickly;

  2. Do not attempt the above (see point 1) if less than 6 months has not lapsed since said breakup;

  3. Realise no amount of talking and mulling over it will right any wrongs, so do not bother;

  4. Lastly, becoming firm friends shortly after breakup is near impossible. Over time, it is a possibility but will not get off to a terrific start....and in some instances will not get off to any start at all, which is still okay!

Let's go over it all again
by James Fenton

Some people are like that.
They split up and then they think:
Hey, maybe we haven't hurt each other to the uttermost.
Let's meet up and have a drink.

Let's go over it all again.
Let's rake over the dirt.
Let me pick that scab of yours.
Does it hurt?

Let's go over what went wrong –
How and why and when.
Let's go over what went wrong
Again and again.

We hurt each other badly once.
We said a lot of nasty stuff.
But lately I've been thinking how
I didn't hurt you enough.

Maybe there's more where that came from,
Something more malign.
Let me damage you again
For the sake of auld lang syne.

Yes, let me see you bleed again
For the sake of auld lang syne
