i told myself

by Anna F., 18

Emotionless and numb to my rash decision
I told myself I wouldn’t write about you
But she told me that I would soon find myself

Where I am now

Sitting on my bed

Writing about you

Hopeful and uncertain for the promise of my future
I told myself I wouldn’t need to hear your voice
But she, again, told me that soon I would be
Where I am now

Staring at this page

Writing about you

Jaded and tired of my monotonous routine
I am trying to tell myself that I made the right decision
But after the dust settled, Youth was right about me being
Where I am right now

Driving myself mad

Writing about you
