the pain comes in waves

the pain comes in waves
i’ll be walking down the street
or sitting in a car
or a restaurant
you know what i do now?
i go out to eat
alone
and somewhere between the peas
and the mashed potatoes
i get all choked up
it’s usually between the vegetables
and the fish
i start to cry
and people start to look at me
and i look back
and i’m all right
then i make it through the coffee
and that’s life for me
these days

that’s funny, isn’t it?
