Mathematics

Two minus one as pair became single.

Simple mathematics that’s all it is.

You got to subtract the love, the memories and the feelings.

Add a new girl, then you multiply that feeling.

I’m the ex in the equation that you found to be nothing, zero.

It’s easy for you, I was never good at mathematics.

See I can’t figure it out.

My equation must be so different, so complex that one can’t figure it out alone.

I try to turn this love into hate but I don’t know how because love divided by hate is confusion.

Confusion plus memories and two times the feelings is a broken heart.

You know that’s me the ex that equals zero.

So, somehow our equations meet, a broken heart equals zero.

I asked you for help but I couldn’t tell that x equals x, not y.

But you’re my why that I’m desperately trying to solve for.

My why did I love you so hard?

My why can’t we fix it?

My why tell me one thing but do another?

My why did you break me down like I was so difficult to figure out?

You’re good at this remember?

At one point x and y equaled the same, a forever.

But in this equation the why equals an infinity that didn’t last forever.

One day I’ll figure out that I need to switch the “why” and “ex” so I can subtract the love, the memories and the feelings.

Add a new boy and multiply that feeling.

Then you’d be the ex in the equation that I found to be zero,

And you’d be broken hearted.

And I’d switch to the why, the why did I lose her.

But you know it’s easy for you, I was never good at mathematics.
