someone wise tried saying to me,
"don't mess with a good thing, right?"
and i put my two cents in,
and kindly disagreed.

the friendship you have, with the boy you admire
day dreaming of the love you could share
but you're just sitting there,
not pestering your wonderful friendship,

the love you've had since grade ten,
sweethearts for a decade, going on two
he cheats every sunday and you pretend you're dreaming
not bothering to make a fuss about a theory,

try for love?
or keep a friend.

confront his infidelity?
or keep the bastard around for the family,

mess with a good thing,
make it better.

don't pretend it's the best it can be
be as happy as you can.
