  1.     

self fulfilling prophecy vs. fate

Is self-fulfilling prophecy really just fate in disguise?
Is our all important free-will just a front for destiny?
Maybe the agonized decisions I’ve thought I made
Were all planned out ahead of time.
And I wasted my time thinking I actually had a choice

  2.     

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.

  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.     

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.
