Hitting the Rewind Button

the skinny

on being loved

is

getting fatter

all the time

justifiably

ordering another

extra-large

double deep

oozing

pan

 pizza

thrice in one night

as

Feelings wane

singing

those sadder songs

handing your

new lover

another savory bubbling

wedge

of confusion

and

paths crossed

which all go

up on top the edge

of a cliff

as

you look out carefully

to the horizon

remembering

how you got dumped

by  the last ‘perfect guy’

and

you take another bite

of broken heart

cause’

he told you

he didn’t love you anymore

and never did

(and as it turned out it wasn’t the garlic breath like you thought)

and then

you wondered…

‘how can I live my best life?’

while

you grab another dripping piece

deciding

to eat what you should

so

life’s not unsavory

hitting the rewind button

reminiscing

replaying your life

down at your local

pizza parlor

mastering

those memories

as old as the hills

about that last kiss

and pitcher of beer

heading to the

place you hide

where you damned well know

 no one’s goanna find you sitting there

in your car sobbing

tears of nostalgia

alone

but

when you

drive your car

half soused

hitting the skids

to

‘lo and behold

no one’s there!’

the parking

space is waiting

under that shady tree

watching parents

swing their kids

as

you hoped you’d be there alone

surrounded by peace and serenity

in the park

that yesteryear

wishing you were

in that swing

that’s undoubtedly why

tonight

you must eat all the garlic bread you want!

because you have

a hot date with the devil!

maybe

you’ll decide to

dance with him

forever running

in that embrace

feeding each other

opening the lid of that

third

pizza

piping hot box

wiping each other’s mouths

with napkins of

tainted

love

as

your new found friend

is

sitting

in front of you

as you stare into

his red glowing

and soulfully

hungry

eyes

you see he wants something

not pizza

not your body

not your love

not even a tinge of respect

but it is that something else

you know he wants

that

you will never in your right mind

willingly give

despite hitting the rewind button
