Thought Poem

I wrote this last night before I went to bed. It’s not the best, but it’s just some things I was feeling. 

Happy birthday
I write this to you—
Happy birthday
On your Facebook wall;
Happy birthday,
What else should I say?
I hope you have a joyous day,
Too pretentious, what can I say?
Never across your Facebook wall
Will I type, key after key
Stroke for stroke,
How I fell for you,
My ex’s best friend.
When I should have been loving him,
I secretly longed for you—
Text after text,
Through his phone,
Don’t worry he knew,
But so did you.
We were so sly,
Who needed to cover up a lie?
As he made fun of you,
I stood up for you—
That’s why things fell apart,
Or so I suspect, partly.
He knew, I am sure he did;
My eyes glowed
Whenever I mentioned you.
Happy birthday
To the boy I fell for,
Maybe for all the wrong reasons,
But they feel so right.
No, I won’t write this
Across your Facebook wall—
I’ll stick with pretentious;
May your day be joyous and fun
And all your wishes come true;
Happy birthday!

  1. Definitely a good piece of poetry in its own right.
