  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.     

the intricacies of love and loving

falling out of love, an interesting turn of phrase.
is it slow and burdensome, like a twisting knife
or can it happen with one unexpected lie, like the shattering of a glass.
what do you do when you wake up and realize
the one who’s laying beside you
isn’t the one you love..
and how do you make yourself stop loving
the one who’s moved on.
the intricacies of love and loving.
you can love someone and not be in love with them.
you can be in love with someone but know they aren’t “the one”.
But you can only have one soul-mate.
And if you are wondering if you’ve found that person… you haven’t
so, you may ask…how do you fall out of love?
if its your soul-mate… you don’t.

  4.     

when best friends fall in love, everyone loses something

They know we are in love
we are their insecurity
each glance is measured
and every word weighed.

we are fiercely protective of us
God help those who interfere
for now they know this, and
choose to look the other way

we don’t mean to sneak around
we aren’t even lovers
but we have given them hope
and it seems cruel to take it away..

soul-mates but not lovers,
trying to behave as friends.
because she hates me and he hates you,
and everyone hates “us” except for us.

with the lines being drawn
we’ve forced ourselves to choose
between being best friends now
or someday lovers…

so we feign politeness and smiles
how-are-you’s and I-am-fine’s
we speak of children and weather
and die a little more each day

when best friends fall in love
everyone loses something.
