  1.     

happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts

I have to keep reminding myself to forget you.
Forget you and me.
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts.)
You wanted me to promise to never say it again
Those three words
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts)
Which is laughably easy to do right now because
We are so far out of touch I couldn’t reach you if I tried
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts)
So I plod through grey days and inky dark nights
Heavy laden with regret
(Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, think happy thoughts)
Tomorrow I will remind myself to forget you.
Forget you and me.

  2.     

PTSD of an army wife

I wake up and reach for you...
you're not there.

I do my work, meaningless & rote,
I miss you

Evening time comes,
twilight and darkness we usually share

Pillow talk conversations,
Goodnight kiss rituals we usually share

I don't want to go to bed alone,
I miss you

Restless sleep, dream, wake
You’re not there

My world has no meaning
Without you here

  3.     

one man's cult is another man's religion

One man’s cult is another man’s religion.

You do know that don’t you?

you with your narcissistic personality,
a disorder which allows you to prey
on the circumstantially weak
and still be able to sleep at night.

you wake up each day
and fall in love with your reflection all over again.

demanding excessive praise from everyone
striking down the ones who dare
try to counterbalance with reality.

Whoever doesn’t feed into your grandiose
sense of self-importance
or has the audacity to question
your ultimate authority
will be immediately excommunicated
and vigorously forgotten.

  4.     

i dont want you to be happy without me

i want you to be happy.
but i dont want you to be happy without me.
not while i'm still in love with you.
i'm horribly selfish that way
and admitting it to myself and to you
doesn't make me feel good
but it does make me honest.
