they say for women we forget some of our deepest pain
and that must be true
because it feels like i have amnesia when it comes to you
never remembering the recurring heartbreak
until it's impending,
doom around the corner
foreboding seeping through the longing between your lines
and maybe we don't know how to be just friends
and maybe just friends looks different for us
but i don't see you trying
i don't see you giving anything
i don't see you changing
and after a while, i'm pretty sure i'm the common denominator
isn't your life better when i'm not around?
why do we only find each other when we're drowning?
are we life rafts
