The long and short about The Broken Heart



The workload at my work place is really getting to be a bit too much. I left close to midnight last night, and here I am back at this shitty little place again.

Anyway, Office Bimbo’s breakup brought back painful memories for me. Even though I’ve never had a girlfriend before, I do how bad it feels when your heart gets smashed into pieces. The following is an epic poem I wrote after my secondary school crush dumped me:


The Broken Heart

Broken heart, very painful.
It hurts so much it’s like very painful.
Feelings change, what to do?
It’s better to be hurt soon than to remain a fool.

I met a girl once, beside the loo.
She was an Ah Lian, and that was very cool.
We spoke, she laughed, I was acting the fool.
We became good friends, and even went to the zoo.

But this girl, also a bit terrible.
Want this want that, want me buy this and that for her.
Shopping shopping shopping, everyday shopping.
Shop until I shop away my lunch money and fed on nothing.

This has got to stop, my wallet told me so.
So I told her I must save up, if not I can’t marry her.
I asked her to be my girlfriend, but she say she’s not sure.
But she will be very sure, if I can buy her a Perlini Silver.

So I saved and saved and saved, and got her the necklace she wanted.
But she never became my girlfriend, even though she got what she wanted.
She say I was very stupid, and called me a ‘Robert’.
And that’s the reason why, I cried for days after.

Broken heart, very painful.
It hurts so much it’s like very painful.
Feelings change, what to do?
It’s better to be hurt soon than to remain a fool.

By the way, just in case you're wondering, I tried but failed miserably in my attmepts to get the cab fare from Office Bimbo. She said I was very cruel to ask money from her when she's nursing a broken heart :(

With Love,
