I woke up in someone else’s bed.
I flirted with another woman’s head.
I said too much.
I talked too loud.
I promised forever to a wanderer.
I gambled on settling with her forever
before asking myself what I even wanted.
Don’t be silly; I’m not a poet.
I can’t write your life to intertwine
Let’s pretend there’s no such thing as forever.
