Things I Wish I Didn’t Know

I know you love me

You love me more

than you’ve ever loved anyone else

But I know I’m not the first in your arms

And I can hear how she sweet talked you

How the heat of her body warmed your blood

How she sang into your ear like you two were the only ones in the crowd

The roads you took to spend another night beside her

The words you permanently printed into history about her

I know it all because you’ve shown me, told me, hurt me

You don’t even need to say her name anymore and I know


I know


But do you know how much it messes with me head?

How often moments with you are overridden

My mind replacing me with her

Flashbacks of memories I wasn’t even there for

Please make it stop.

  1. There’s nothing like it
    There’s nothing that will ever be
    That’s why it only takes 4 letters
    But it’s always the same
    The school of hard knocks
    As Sheldon Alwayd
