Silver Lining Bullets

We hadn’t talked
in ten years.

We met freshman year,
got really close,
went through a lot…
there just wasn’t much
to say
after I married his fiancee,
I suppose.

But I got curious
about what he was up to,
so I wrote him.

After a few exchanges,
he just bluntly asked
why I was writing him.

I never responded,
because after considering it,
the real answer was
to say,
“Sorry I screwed you over
a decade ago,
but…
we’re still together,
so at least
I had a good reason,
am I right?”

I am such a shit,
sometimes.
