So I hear you’ve been going with Ed
As your friend, I would rather you not
Like a spider he spins a love web
You’re his prey, so enthralled to be caught
Many girls he has had in his bed
(So if you think you’re special you’re not)
In his poisoned mind he wished them dead
Some surrendered, the stronger ones fought
When he takes you to dinner, they say,
He comes in like a voice in your brain
Taking your sense of reason away
So you order a platter of pain.
While you nibble, he gets in the way
Makes you feel like you’re going insane
He’ll keep saying you’re fat every day
Like some stupid song stuck in your brain.
And oh, the promises he makes!
He’ll have you hooked on a string of desires
Just so you’ll do whatever it takes
To lose all the pounds that he requires
And needless to say, they’re all fakes
All those promises; Ed is a liar.
And one without shame when he breaks
Your spirit, your soul and your fire.
Tell me, why do you cling to his arm?
For there are others out there for you
Real men, who’ll keep you from harm
(And take you on better dinner dates, too.)
Ed is handsome, appealing, with charm
But he’ll leave you the second he’s through.
His charisma is cause for alarm
For a true friend who wants to save you.
So the next time Ed knocks on your door
With his critical snide and his doubt
Throw a box of his things on that floor,
Say he’s got to pack up and scoot out.
If he calls you, then you must ignore,
For you’ve chosen a healthier route.
The path of well being, smiles galore,
And learning what real love is about.
