I. When I think of last year, I think of you in your favorite shirt - The V for Vendetta one that was a size too small. You always had those diamond studs in. I thought they looked so good on you.
II. This year, that shirts sitting in my closet collecting dust. I remember how it smelled when you gave it to me (I didn’t wash it for three weeks.) I remember wearing it to bed every night.
III. Those studs are about 1/2 an inch now. You told me when I ran into you today.
IV. How embarrassing to know my name is written all over your bedroom wall. I hope you’ve painted over it by now.
V. We were always on the same page, somehow. I think if I had peeled my skin off more regularly, I’d find your name carved into my bones. If we had peeled off yours, they would’ve been completely blank.
VI. I’m sorry about the time we got too drunk and puked behind your bed. Actually, it was one of the best nights of my life. I’m not apologizing to you- I’m apologizing to myself.
VII. You’re a distant memory. To you, I was a single raindrop that bounced off of you as you walked through a storm. I wish I could’ve made up the whole damn cloud.
VIII. I fell in love again. I wish I could tell you all about his smile. I don’t think about you anymore.
IX. I walk around with my skin turned inside out now in hopes that you won’t recognize me. Sometimes I let my eyes fill with tears when you walk by. Remember the night I burst into tears and cried like a bitch to you? Emily laughed at me just before drawing moons & suns on your blue walls. I hope you think about me and smile.
