Everyone wants a happy ending

everyone wants a happy ending

she’s been out of my body
not even six months yet
but everyone wants a happy ending

my bones drag across the cemetery
every day to see my daughter
everyone wants a happy ending

vomit swirls in my stomach, in my colon
up my throat
everyone wants a happy ending

the boys ask where baby tinsley is
and watch me cry
everyone wants a happy ending

well you’re healthy and you can try again
the chances of another knot are so so slim
everyone wants a happy ending

oh but don’t they know
there are no happy endings
after an ending like this
