Last Words to a User

I don’t wish you well
because you’ve erased
the memory
of what you’ve done to me
disavowed every hurtful word
action and inaction

And now you want to be told
I still have my nose in the gravel
so you can lord it over
and thank god
you aren’t so pitiful

But I know soon
the loved ones who prop you up
will break under your burden
as I did

So don’t ask me to smile for you
when you never did the same for me

    1. Thanks! I think all the anger came out here. Now I’m getting weepy. Had a few people ask me if I was okay, tell me they missed me, and of course you lovely guys here. ❤
