• Karma and You

    The sun sets

    A day is put to bed

    The moon has circled the earth

    Time has moved forward

    A shadow moves across my face

    Hidden from the routine

    Deep within I wait

    Until the time that I can sneak a glance your way

    My interest is morbid curiosity

    Awaiting a court date, a divorce, a tragedy

    Karma must be fair to everyone

    So your time will come And it will be immense

    The internet serves as my instrument

    You post your happiness, your boredom

    Your wife expresses her undying love

    The same words I had uttered repeatedly and believably

    Like a practiced lawyer I have laid out my case

    It is airtight and irreproachable

    If the jury is filled with ex-girlfriends

    You will surely be convicted

    If the judge is your wife,

    schooled by lies and slight of hand

    there is no question

    that you will be freed

    I have held the gavel myself

    Witness after witness gave their testimony

    Ripe with betrayal and blasphemy

    But I believed only you

    Another day passes

    And my scars begin to heal

    But a cologne can cause the memories to rush back in

    And I am drowning in unspoken anger

    I never stood up for myself

    I never said I was worth better

    I never believed it

    So I wait for karma to defend me

    As the sun sets

    I watch from the sidelines

    Waiting for the negative energy

    To come full circle

      It takes the moon 28 days to orbit the earth, not 1. Alright poem though.
