I threw away two out of the three hoodies you've given me.

I can’t find the third one.

Just kidding, it’s entangled with the blankets on my bed,

exhausted from its debut last night as my favorite pajama. 

BUT we aren’t focusing on that. 

WE are focusing on the the other two that I DID throw out.

It was surprisingly easy.

Probably as easy as it was for you to suit on me.

 

You love Rocky Balboa.

My dad’s name is Rocky.

Thanks Jesus, how long have you been waiting for THAT one to play itself out?

What once was a simply ironic and friendly reminder of the messenger of your favorite quote,

is now a surf bite on my heart…ouch.

 

A friend of mine and I were talking about math 

He says he likes math,

I say that you do too

He asks why and 

I tell him because math has a definite answer.

You like definite answers 

I tell him maybe that’s why it’s so hard for you to love. 

 

I’m not angry.

I don’t blame you,

but I blame myself.

 

Dear self, 

I am sorry that I did not love you enough 

to recognize that his lack of love and affection towards you 

was undeserved. 

I am sorry that I put him before our worth.

 

Dear You,

I am sorry for nothing 

other than the fact that you will not be getting your sweat pants back,

I know they were your favorite,

But hey, I gave you every favorite piece of me that I had to give,

so lets just call it square.
