i’ve been having a terrible pain

craning my neck in search

for my soulmate, in vain

where could they be on earth?

my muscles continue to hurt

while i’m looking all around me

happy faces, grinning flirts

and i’m tamping down the envy

the ache doesn’t go away

even if i try to keep my head down

trying to get through each day,

examining the ground

my tendons still clench

when i stretch back to look behind

remembering when i was dense

and in sweeter, fluffier times

only when i look straight ahead

crack my neck, burst the bubbles

floating around in my head

can the pain be gone, no more trouble
