first:
lie.
say you’re just looking to have fun.
don’t tell her about the last time this happened.
plan on staying away from beds and grabby hands.
plan on forgetting for once.

next:
lay in bed anyway because you trust her.
debate if that’s wise.
contemplate the universe and what dying feels like.
decide it sounds like her laughter.
feel like dying.

then:
let her hold you.
try to decide if you want to remember this tomorrow.
whisper into her mouth that you love her.
let her shakily toss it back.
lie to yourself.
say you’ll forget.
don’t.

lastly:
wake up with her in the other bed.
complain about the headache.
don’t complain about the lack of warmth.
she’ll ask if you remember last night.
lie.

be hurt when she does too.

write poetry about how you don’t care.
do.
lie anyway.
that's what got you into this anyway.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-06-30
how to get drunk and not mean it by allinthen is a recipe for dysfunction, full of personal, concrete details that help it read almost as a transcription from someone's guilty conscience. ( Featured by ShadowedAcolyte )

I always get a shudder when I read good poetry.

Yet again, thank you for being an author who doesn't resort to bullshit depression baseline inspirations. You earned that DD.

The raw honesty of this piece creates a really visceral reaction in me. I'm not sure if everyone has been in this situation but you make it palpable for even those who haven't. Congrats on your DD-- you deserve it.
