Hindsight in the Morning
In the wee hours of the morning, I got a text message from one of my ex.
It was full of his hopes:
He hoped I did not hate him.
He hoped we could one day be friends
I was polite and I was nice.
I relieved him of his guilt.
I assured him”It was all good”
I did what ‘cool’ chicks do.
And what I did was wrong.
Too many texts from too many exes.
They have regrets and bags of “I’m sorry”
But an apology in hindsight, doesn’t make it alright.
Doing what he should have done, when he was ACTUALLY my man
Would have been better than
A late night text message full of his hopes:
He hopes I do not hate him.
He hopes we can one day be friends.
