In his arms

It should make me happy
He makes her feel warm
Happy to know
she is safe in his arms
and the sight of her laugh
fills him with glee
happier than ever is not happy for me
her happy ever after is not happy for me

those foolish butterflies
that I recognise
look so much better
in her pretty eyes
as if I could come close
to all that they will be
she keeps that happiness far away from me
her happy ever after is not happy for me

I am a monster
with all the time I spend
secretly hating
her happy end
that is no way
to treat your best friend
if she is happy then I should be
happy that her ever after is not with me
