familiar



they still make me smile,
love, even though i dont;
you dont. maybe
its because i've,
forgotten all the
hurt. or maybe
its because i've,
forgiven what was
base. or maybe
its because i'm.
just downright stupid.


but you know better
than most 
don't you,
that none of those three
are true.
that it is because,
during all the hurt,
you just stopped 
being you.

the reasons
they don't matter
and i could try
but its futile
'cause i don't demean myself
by being a victim
by giving you the benefit
of all my doubts
while you type
your metaphors
that i'm scared to decipher

so,
the reasons
they never matter,
choices do

Did I mention I love the pic with the post?

Sigh.

confusingly creepy and haunting picture. words, as always, got that element that makes me wish I could memorize them.

Meghana Naidu said...

tris: did i mention you need to locked up, with only videos of panthers, pandas and 47shooters around you? preferably for a year.
capisce?

hippie-girl: why thank you. there has always been this unwillingness in my words to stick around my head. they come right out and onto paper. i cannot, for the life of me, quote myself.
