Back then
it was easy to convince myself
that I mattered.

But contrary evidence
presented itself
over and over
that I didn’t.

So when I couldn’t
convince myself anymore,
I walked away
from all that mattered to me.

And now,
not that it matters
to anyone,
maybe not even me,
it’s pretty easy to
convince myself
that I don’t.

    That’s a sad poem. Hope it’s not about you cause I know you matter.
