What It’s Like

by Kristina

It’s like an awful movie
And everyone tells you 
That the ending sucks 

Still you go to the theater
And you sit through 
90 minutes of a predictable story

Where they don’t end up together
And it leaves you uneasy
Because movies aren’t supposed to be realistic 

It’s like a sad song 
And everyone tells you 
It will make you cry 

Still you listen and sing along 
Not because you like it but
Because the lyrics make sense

It’s like a tragedy you see 
On late night television 
When you should be asleep

And despite your efforts to
Close your eyes and forget 
You just can’t ignore 

And you’re uneasy
And you’re crying
And you’re bitter

Because you’re alone 
And it’s real
And the ending fucking sucks
