lessons learned from my ex

rainbows don’t always come after a storm

and when they do they don’t stick around long

and words hurt

even empty ones with no rebound action

or is it an assist action

or was it the action that cut through my soul

fairytales don’t grown on trees

and promises only go as far as you throw them

closed mouths don’t eat

and open mouths get eaten alive

go with your gut

except sometimes it gets it wrong

feelings only matter when they are yours

and they are private

and the psychic network is down

and the ledge is slippery

but i am balanced enough to hold myself steady

and strong enough not to jump
