Alone

Sleeping away from the city,
Sleeping away from you,
I realize I had forgotten 
I realize I had not discovered 
my need for space.
my desire for space.
I am doing well alone.
I am thriving alone.

Fourth Reason

Come on, what are you doing?
Come on, what are you doing?
Have you even read it yet?
I know you read it already.
I hate that you hate read receipts.
I love that you love read receipts.

A Bathtub

I just think I 
I think I just
fell in love with
fell in love in
a bathtub.
a bathtub.

Hot Water

Honey, why's this water so hot?
Honey, this water is not hot enough.
That's your problem,
That's my problem,
you were too hot.
I like it too hot.

Whatever the Reason

Honestly,
Secretly,
I will be extraordinary
I would've been mediocre.
for me.
for you.

You Leave

Going forward, if some thing
Going forward, if some man
does not bring you joy
does not give you joy
but takes up your time,
but takes up your space,
you leave it.
you leave him.

No Energy

Money is just energy.
Relationships are just energy.
You trade pieces of paper
You trade pieces of yourself
for goods or services.
for love or companionship.
You may end up with more.
You may end up with less.
I am done chasing money.
I am done chasing relationships.
I am exhausted.
I am exhausted.
