Some Strange

28 May
From the sound of her voice I could tell she was really unhappy with me.
She’d already called twice and I should have already been over at her place
in fact I had no business being out at this hour,
and should have called things off way before it’d gotten to this point.

But have you ever done something knowing
that it was stupid but couldn’t
stop yourself from doing it anyway?

I rushed into my apartment
threw on a different shirt
washed my face
brushed my teeth
and sprayed some cologne in the air.

Checking myself in the mirror
feeling like a cliche,
looking just like one of THOSE guys,
a liar and a cheater.
