The words on the packet

Like mocking laughs 

Perfect for sharing 

With your other half 

I scoff as I open it 

Toss the contents aside 

Preheat the oven 

As the packet describes 

Soon the light clicks 

The oven is ready 

I put the food in 

But my heart is heavy 

For now I must wait

And I laugh to myself 

For heating up food 

Is like love itself 

There are instructions 

Love takes time to bloom 

For a while it’s just right 

But it is always doomed

Lasagne for two 

Well just an hour ago 

That would have been perfect 

You just never know
