On Her List Of Things To Do

She loves her indie movies

but I already know the plot, I’ve seen it before

But if you want to go, hell, Let’s go together

We’ll sneak some drinks in and sit

up in the fourth row


Promise not to ask me how this ends,

I promise not tell you

we’ll sit there holding hands and

watch the story play

out like it has a thousand times before


Maybe you’ll let your fingers linger

on my arm a little too long like you did

when nobody was there

and we could talk a little closer in the dark

and you would know that

nobody would notice

how much you really cared


Everybody’s living in a movie

but I already know the plot

I’ve seen it before.
