A Word to My Ex Chronicles
Please don’t get me the satisfaction of convincing me when you care
WHEN YOU DON’T
Let’s not mince words,
Let’s not be two ships passing in the night
Let’s save the fights
I refuse the back and forth via TEXT
Don’t allude to chilling and Netflix
Just say you what you actually want
Why you want my body and trash my heart?
Politely saying I want you no strings attached would have saved me some humiliation
It took me cursing you out for you to get the memo that I was hurt
And even then you were a little TOO LATE
I moved on and despite giving you my sex I would have given you my heart
That’s what happens when a lioness forgets to play her part
You took me when I was a baby cub, in a new environment and so unsure of who i truly was
Thankfully I found my way
No thanks to you
I was right. Only two chapters to become a fool.
This is me the entire time! GAH! What mockery of life is this?! EL James is trying to bamboozle us all. There is no way I’m going to accept a man showing extreme signs of stalking, jealousy and abuse because he’s rich. THEE ONLY REASON this is plausible in some fashion is because I remember how I was with the guy I lost my virginity to. You do sorta get this puppy-dog-follow-you-around and you-can-do-no-wrong mentally. Still! I’m over all this crazy sex everywhere. You know what? I can’t be mad because I knew going in this was the basis for this book’s appeal. STILL I be so mad reading. Like in five days all that happened? Really Christian?! Really Ana. No wonder she need time to breathe. I was outta breath just reading. I would have ran for the hills A LONG TIME AGO. Still their relationship is hectic and trashy and interesting. Congrats to the messed up couple who in some strange way are more alike than they realize and who deserve each other. The end was unexpected and finally about more than their relationship! Five points to Gryffindor for a plot twist. 4 out 5 points for making me read on! Negative one because I won’t ever read this again. Once was enough, I’m sure.
So, as much as I kicked and screamed the people have spoken. 50 Shades of Grey will be my next read. I will do my best to not read it as the 50 Shades of Trash I know it is. I have heard from many a reliable source that this book was terribly written in the worst way. AND YET HERE I AM!
I am expecting the holy grail of facepalms as I read. Maybe that will make it a little better for me. You know? Having low expectations makes it that much easier to exceed them. Fingers crossed ya’ll.
