Don’t you dare hurt me

or I will use my words

to destroy you

you are part of me now and you can’t take that back

your skin is my skin forever

no matter how many times I have tried to scrub you off

you can pretend it was

entirely my fault

but I know it will be my voice echoing in your head:

“I don’t owe you anything.”

the truth.

(but you lived for the lies)

you can go tell all your friends your truth

and I will be writing poems about mine,

the way you loved me, bitterly

while I longed for him

and it will be my words against yours.
