Sometimes the bully isn’t the captain of the cheerleaders or the girl who for some reason has it out for only you; sometimes the worst bully of them all is you.- Karles_Ivy

My eyes red and puffy; stinging
Cheeks stained with dead waterfalls
An agonizing hole in my heart

Camaflouged into the darkness
Distanced from sound and sight
I solemnly stare at my cell phone

A blank screen gawks back at me
Anxious fingers kip swiftly over the keepad,
Its light illuminating the cruel night


Perplexed by my random decision
I miss you tedious greeting
Forcing you to say once more

A thousand words caught in my throat
Cowardly tears overwhelm me once more

I angrily punch at the end button
And sob into my aging hands

This is about that moment when you realize that the person you love is now a stranger to you, and there's no way of getting them back.
