She’s moved on now
And I’m trying to convince myself
That’s a good thing.
I have a new job now
I’m still sad but in a new way
And that’s a good thing, I think.
I’ve been writing more poetry than ever before
And I swear this time,
It’s a good thing,
Nothing like the last time.
My hand isn’t aching so bad
Not as much as my heart anyways,
I’ve been giving it away a lot more recently
I always think it’s a good thing
Until I get it back – in pieces.
You would laugh if you could see it now
It’s nothing like how you left it
I doubt you’d recognise it
And I’m undecided if that’s a good thing.
