I want you to know,
that i saved all those IMs
When my parents were fighting,
throwing things and words back and forth
I was crying in my closet,
looking at those IMs
They were the only things that kept me going
that made me smile
But then I got one IM
i never wanted to see
“we should just stay friends”
I shouldn’t have been surprised when i saw it
But even for you, that was low.
