Putting you in a poem,
You must be flattered.
but all I understand is that my heart is shattered.
Here’s to you.
I write and erase,
I erase those memories out of my head.
I write and cross out,
I cross out the things I wish didn’t happen.
I write and use white out.
I use white out on everything I pray you would undo.
Suddenly I’m back to where I started.
A blank piece of paper,
and a blank heart.
putting you in a poem isn’t easy.
So next time you read something that makes you feel flattered,
understand that to me it actually mattered.
