Happy Birthday


Happy Birthday,


I thought of you,


I surprised myself,

because I even got the date right. 

I pictured you having a good time,


I pictured you

fucking some guy

I will never know the name of. 


I thought,

you deserve it.

I Imagine (my Ex)



I imagine a world where my Ex falls for the guy she bitched about the most during our time together.  A world where he treats her like shit, because she deserves it.  Or so she says later.

I also imagine a world where Exes can wish each other Happy Birthday.  Not just one of them, and then silence from the other.

I imagine a world where I am fulfilled and loved, and in love.

And then,

I imagine a world where all my mistakes never happened.  But in that world, all the mistakes go away, and with them all the good that has come from them along the way.  And I stop, and wish for my Ex all the happiness I don’t think I deserve.
