how unfortunate

23 Jul

how unfortunate that i rolled

when i should have rocked

i made my bed

but neglected to lie in it

how unfortunate that the words i said

were not the words you expected

and the things i did were but an empty pantomime

of desires unexpressed

how unfortunate

that you should happen to notice my shortcomings

at the least opportune moments

leaving me standing there awkward and ashamed

with my hair sticking out

and my pants unzipped

how unfortunate

that i didn’t say all these things much sooner

but i didn’t want to cry

i didn’t want to whine
