"To All My Exes" is a poem I wrote about toxic masculinity and the affects it can have after a romantic relationship has ended.

Exes don't go away

Even years after I've left them

They call out of the blue

Ask what's new

Though I know 

sex is what they're after

 

That's all they want,anyway

A piece of my body

They feel entitled to

Because we dated

 in high school

 

They think it's flattering 

to call me 

their trophy

The one that 

got away

 

They must have forgotten 

I'm the one 

that broke them

Their masculine minds 

in overdrive

 

But, I let them speak

I let them flirt

I let them beg forgiveness

 

I let them drive me home

Then delete their numbers 

from my phone

And fall asleep 

Happy and alone
