Who was I kidding;
thinking I could be someone different,
then maybe you’d stay.
with the weight of your world
wrapped around your ring finger
fits a ring my dead grandmother gave you
as an engagement ring.
My new reality inspires me
to find you drunk again in someone else’s bed.
I take you back,
and life begins again,
not knowing you had a twin sister.
I wondered which sister I slept with
before realizing it didn’t even matter.
