contented, we sighed

why is it i
keep missing the bus
i’m sitting here waiting
i’m thinking of us
entwined and entangled
contented, we sighed
i’m thinking of you
and the bus goes right by
how is it i
kept missing the clues
the hints you were dropping
the visual cues
detached and distracted
the growing divide
i’m thinking of you
and i can’t help but cry
and there goes another bus
passing me by

he believes
apologies
are just for wimps
and girly men
he doodles
on the sticky pad
and orders in
again

Daily prompt – apology
here’s the original sticky notes

how real is your love

how real is your love
she asked
would you walk across a desert
with the hot sun beating down
would you take up economics
would you dress up like a clown
if all or any of this
meant we
could be
a team
together?

how real is your love
he replied
would you not ask silly questions
with my cool heart turning mean
would you take up cleaning & cooking
would you dress up like a queen
if all and I mean all of this
meant we
could be
a team
forever?

no she said
i will not  be your slave
no he said
i will not be your knave
so they broke up
amicably

breakup
