Laura didn’t need to be told
time heals all wounds.
She didn’t need to know
that her heart
would become a calloused vee
where James used to be.
Life lessons come with living,
unforgiving bitches that trap you
in lanes of grief and need
and pontificate about desire and greed.
Words that insult and ensnare
that insinuate and dismay
and make no damn sense anyway.
Waste not! What the fuck?
but better to have to much!
he who hesitates! will sit side by side
with the fool who decides in haste.
Both too early and too damn late.
What does it all mean anyway
A waste of wise words
all for early birds and dead worms.
spoken by fools with woollen tongues.
And as for plenty of fish. Pass on that bitch.
Laura didn’t need to know
that time hardened broken hearts.
she needed just to fall apart
But the idiots told her anyway.
“you’ll be ok” they say
Please just go away.
