The Vanity of the Storm

In quoting Carly Simon

“You’re so vain…I bet you think this song is about you”

Unlike the other songs, yes this one IS about you.

Frankly, your narcissistic and self indulgent behavior is draining

Do you really think that with all I have going on in my personal life

that I have time to really think about you all the time


I let you cry on my shoulder at your darkest hour

laughed with you (not at you) when it was fun & games

Now you find yourself reading between lines of the imaginary


First I was annoyed and offended

Then I was just numb

Now I am indifferent

I sympathize with your pain

But understand that you’re pushing many away

Understand that though I forgive your confusion and misunderstanding

our friendship will never be the same

I am not a fan of accusations & assumption thrown my way

when I don’t deserve them

Know that you pushed the one person who had your ear

& was a true advocate for your plights

& know that I don’t wish you ill will

I wish you peace of mind
