Pike Oil

When I think about the trajectories of our lives
I remember our past selves planning our combined futures
And though we are not together, neither emotionally nor geographically
I feel it has worked out exactly as we planned
Because we will die apart
Having constructed new stories with our current partners
So that they will bear the brunt of our individual downfalls
Thus suffering from decades-long bonds now broken
Bonds inevitability garnered through hard-fought trust and caring
All of which our past selves have no stake in
The heavy lifting having been done by others
Our future selves never having been in on the joke

Draw a circle and write your name in the center. Yup. You're a narcissist.
