Sunny Side Up

edited 11/29

In a separate reality, you didn't leave me for her

and we wake up in the same bed

and i'll make eggs the way you like them

(sunny side up)

we'll laugh

over petty fights

(for we'll always make up)

over tired arguments

(when you tell me I'm always right)

over former lovers.

In the mornings, when i wake up

with the lingering sense of stillness

the apparent void of you

I think of this parallel universe

where we are so, so happy

like we always were.

And this is how

I stopped crying

over the constant reminder of your perfume,

and her sunny little smile.
