We did this to ourselves (A poem)

Bonus round—unfiltered…

Yeah, being wrong can hurt
like the time I waited until I was 40 to get married
so I’d never have to worry
about ever getting divorced
and then we totally got divorced
for the same tired old reasons
that thousands of couples before us
had for getting divorced

And why didn’t the past protect us?
We should have gotten all that shit out of the way
all the way back then
so we wouldn’t have to worry about it this time

I blame you for not understanding me
I blame me for not getting through
I blame us for turning on each other
by turning away from each other
