another post-breakup poem... i'm hoping that it isn't too typical, though.

pretend to miss me

pretend to care

pretend to acknowledge

that i'm no longer there

plead for my presence

beg for my voice

amuse me

or lose me

you know it's your choice.


like i broke your heart

like you care

that i'm gone

please stop saying

that nothing is wrong.

say your world is in pieces


that i'm to blame

say you want things back

say you want things the same.

i can't stand your silence

or this post-breakup stage

i grip the phone with violence

my knuckles white in rage

i want you to call.

please tell me

your sadness is true

and distract me

sidetrack me

so that i don't

miss you.

I love the transitions and feeling. The structure was captivating and it flowed very well.
