table for one

i am single.

in an unsingle world.

i'm sorry that i'm too old to be single.

not sure what to do about that.

i am sex and the city. i am friends.

but that's only cool if you're on the show.

or famous.

otherwise.

odd.

different.

sad.

perhaps pitiful.

still different.

and somehow wrong.

questions.

skepticism.

assumptions.

presumptions.

not sure what to do about those either.

no matter.

i'm still single.

in an unsingle world.

you'll remember

maybe one day
along the way
you'll remember me on this island
smiling at you
how I used to
maybe one day
you'll remember

and it won't be sad
to think of all we had
all unhappy ends can be behind us then
maybe one day
along the way
you'll think of me
and you'll be smiling
maybe one day
maybe one day
maybe one day

you'll remember
