My Problem

 

is that every time i see your names
i am back in that place.

see, i've been thinking of this:
why can't i move past this now
that my life is back on track
and i have what you ran to?

because this was not just about
words on a screen. this was real.

so you go ahead and try and "reach"
me with your snotty fucking poetry.
like i'll believe anything about god
that you say.

it's not about words on the screen.

it was being raped and being alone
being abandoned
being lied to
being played.

all real offline stuff that comes flooding
back every time i see your names.
