The Brackets

On that date,
Comparing him to you
On that day,
Trying to convince myself
That was what I wanted to do

At 12:00 and fine,
Pretending it was stress
At the time,
Causing me to push and shove
Hoping he might like me less

For last night,
Dancing with him
For lost sight,
Wishing I didn’t wish it was you
All the while within

At 3:30 and awake,
Whispering what I should
At the break,
Lying through all the thoughts
That the day has been good

For this Saturday,
Wishing my sense made sense
For this fray,
Realizing I don’t believe what they say
Anymore than you about my defense

When it’s evening,
Knowing I’ll think of you again
When I'm leaving,
Confused that you never gave a good reason
For why you pushed us to end

Time to pause,
Unable to ever forget
A time when you saw the invisible ink
All too aware that you knew the brackets
In me that no one else ever
Had and might ever be able to link
