I see the two of you smiling
Walking hand in hand
It’s like a cheesy romance movie
Makes me sick to my stomach
I can barely breathe whenever I see you
And yet I can’t stop watching
Following you every single day
Sometimes I have these dark thoughts
About what I would do
If I can get you both in my basement
Maybe it will be easier being a widow
Than a divorcee?
About “Never Really Alone”:
This poem, “Never Really Alone” was inspired by this song:
As anyone who has ever had the experience of reading my poetry will tell you, I am always drawn to darker themes. And I can never resist as dark twist. It’s just the way I write. And the song I linked above along with a handful of reddit AITA stories helped me realise that some people will really do anything except accept that their relationship is over. Seriously, people would rather be a widow/widower than be a divorcee which is so bizarre to me. I mean not really, I guess in their head they don’t expect to be caught. But still. Come on.
Anyway, before I get derailed as usual I just wanted to get into that headspace of someone like that. Someone who would rather be in prison than alone. And soon it become more than just about a poem. It became about the thrill of wearing another persons skin (I’m totally kidding!). If you don’t get that reference:
Let me know your thoughts on this and the poem. Or simply stop by and say hi!
