Look at me and tell me you don’t feel anything. See me smiling and tell me it doesn’t hurt. Know I’m not writing about you and tell me you’re still the same person you were a moment ago. Go ahead. You can tell me what you want because I’ll know what you mean. That’s the thing about a person who used to love you. They get in your head, take off their shoes and get comfortable. Tell me you don’t miss me. You do.
— 

Bullshit, you fucking miss me by k.p.k

The first time that I saw you,
I never thought that it would be
the last time that I saw you -
because it wasn’t.

Because every time I looked at you,
my eyes stuttered over your body,
like a tongue trying to find a grasp
on a word, like a flickering light
trying to shine bright again.

The last time that I saw you,
I didn’t know that it was going
to be the last time that I saw you-
because it wasn’t.

Because every time I looked at you
was branded white-hot on the backs
of my eyelids, like the cursive
writing engraved on the bracelet
I bought you for your birthday
that you never wore, like the
careful red print typed into my
thigh that I can’t write over
no matter how hard
I try.

K.P.K
