We'll ignore the stars and cards,
no crystal balls or palm readings
touting positive outlooks in love
can change what's happened.

Human optimism won't make
this better, even if it's wrapped
in arcane mysteries.
No word of god,
or psychoactive drug will
bring him back.

I'll ignore the stars and cards
that say he's missing me
as much as I miss him.
Outright lies like that
only make me cry
when they're proved wrong.

Crystal balls and palm readings
foretold that sad day,
and I disbelieved it to the end.


Stupid cheery horoscope.
