NOT A HERO

I cheated
On you
And you
And even you

I had all the justifications
Lined up

Enough
To last a lifetime

Enough
To get away with it
One more time

I’m not the hero
Or the victim
Of these sad stories
Despite what my ego
Keeps trying to convince me

It didn’t take much arm twisting
To get me to do the wrong thing

And maybe
You all were crazy to begin with
I sure didn’t do anything to help it

I brought my own brand of crazy to add to the mix

Threw it all in the front yard
On display for the whole world to see
Took the matches and set flames
To all our hopes and dreams
Burned everything to
Ash and embers
Of resentment

And then blamed you for not putting the fires out
