You Really Don't

You really don't want to be around us right now
My wife without her smokes
And me being a fat man who can't eat
I love her and she loves me
But you can't tell it
We're both at each others throats
We know what it is
And we get over it
But lets be honest
It's ugly

A friend came over today
"Why aren't you smiling? You're always smiling"
I put one of those fake smiles, and sipped my water
"I'll live longer," I remind myself
A thought comes to my mind
"If this is going to be my diet, do I want to?"
I ponder
I'm still pondering

My wife got one of those vapes
She got the foulest tasting flavor she could find
Doesn't want to quit smoking and start another habit
Just hits it when she's craving
She's quit before
It was ugly then too
But then I wasn't so stressed...

You really, really, don't want to be around us right now
