You replaced me very quickly,
Though at first you didn’t want me to go and insisted
You would take me back, lucky me, if I changed my mind.
You spent a few months devastated and then
Jumped into online mate searching.
After about a year of false starts you found someone.
I can’t help but notice how desperately you
Did not want to live alone and needed to
Quickly fix that state
And I wonder if it is because
when you are alone
There is no one else to blame for anything.
Because You Exist
Because you exist the sun shines brighter
The sky is bluer, the roses small sweeter
And it’s not that it all didn’t delight
My senses before,
In those days when you were not mine
And I was not yours.
It’s the way I appreciate them more
Because they are making the world a beautiful place
For you, just as you make it a beautiful place for me.
The Real Reason
I am not sexy but he thinks I am
And why would I argue?
I am not conventionally pretty
But he thinks I am beautiful so
I shall not complain.
But the real reason I am in love?
It is because he sees more,
Beyond that, above that,
And I display all my flaws,
Throw them in his face
And say-Look see! Not lovable.
He laughs and says,
