You Can Pretend

There you go

You have permission

To act like she was a coward.

You have permission

To tell everyone

How you rescued her

How you loved her deeply

And she did you so wrong!

You can cry at the loss

Of what you thought would be forever

Change your phone number

In case she ever decides to call

Snivel to all your friends about what she did wrong

Imagine the nerve of her leaving

A wonderful and honest man like you!

Don’t forget to rehearse the lies

You tell yourself every night

So you don’t mix up the story

To the next woman

You deceive.
