I’m reading your poems and I’m looking for me.

I’m turning over stones and I’m searching for us-

I’m opening snapchats

Breath caught in my chest,

I wrote a new poem,

Let’s see it.

Let’s see our year:

This time,

These fights,

Our love:

Let’s see that power she triggered.

I thought for sure

In your happiness,

You’d write about me for once, too.

I know I sound bitter,

I’m crazy they have you,

What I’m asking for’s extra, extra.

Need more than to know it,

Need more than to feel it,

Want to, so badly

Print reassurance,

I’m waiting to

read all about it.
