Every time he reaches out,
don’t forget he shut you down.
Every time he makes you smile,
don’t forget he makes your eye twitch.
Every time you miss that warm water,
don’t forget to take a cold shower.
Every time you hear that song,
don’t forget you can skip it.
Every time you muse over that night,
don’t forget the rude awakening.
Every time you think it’s different,
don’t forget it’s always the same.
Every time you miss it,
remember that you don’t need it.
Every time he says it’s just friends,
remember there’s no such thing.
Rewire your imagination.
Rewrite your story.
Reframe your perspective.
You’ve done it before.
You’ll do it again.
What are you waiting for?
