It’s Not About You… a poem

It's Not About You

Sometimes it's not about you
I can sit and cry
Or wake up screaming
Or just need to get away from the
The tv the dogs the how-was-your-day

And it's not about you

Sometimes I can open my eyes
And want to close them forever
And hear the waves crash against the brick
No more snow or cars or deadlines
And stars replace the fluorescent lights

It's not about you

Sometimes I can hate it all
Even when it's textbook right
And the promotions the sex the money
And even the marriage are going
Exactly as I've always wanted

And although it's not about you
It's you holding my crazies together
It's you I turn to
It's you I count on
It's all about you
