i: x

the rain collides with my tears
and i can't tell if it is my tears
or the rain beating on my
umbrella, drips down it

& pours into the sewer
(my tears die on my lips)
i don't open my mouth
because i'm afraid to

taste the bitterness
& the wind swirls around
me like my emotions
& you don't understand

when we cross paths
it's two steps back from
square one, you corner
me with ur o's and

i try to move around
this maze - you make me
crazy, dead ends are
your specialty

you pull the old
conquering every
corner & we
can't have a truce

i'm done with your
tic tac toe games &
mind games so I
x you out

so why do I feel like you've
x me out of your life?
