The Power of Facebook

I anxiously await your reply to my message,
Asking you about how your day was.
You didn’t respond, do you not want to talk to me?
I’m not crazy, it was just a question.

I search your profile with my wasted hours.
My eyes are crying for a break from reading,
But my mind hangs on to every Wall Post.
I enjoy your funny Sponge Bob quotes,
your choice words to your parents after grounding you,
you review of your school day.
It never gets old.

I look at your pictures.
They capture the good times we had.
I look at you in your wild Halloween costume,
Putting it in the folder “good dayz :))” makes sense.
I just wish your spelling was as good as your smile.

You updated your status 2 seconds ago?
Cool, it’s clear to me you obviously care.
I thought we were friends,
But it’s OK to betray me.
I’ll hold those words close,
how you posted that I’m annoying.
I’ll just delete us as friends like real life,

We’ll stop messaging each other,
we can remove each other as ‘In a Relationship.’
It was never true anyway.
And let’s get rid of our crazy pics together.

That’s done, I guess I’m forgotten.
I guess I’ll post lies about you in a counterattack,
since we’re being jerks and all.
Oh good! You just posted to your GF that men suck.
Haha, what a riot! I love your sense of humor.

I’m done, signing off.
We’ll forget each other tomorrow.

Wow, that's funny, sad, and horrifying. I'm soooo glad that I don't have a facebook. I love the nonchalant tone even though it's a stupid breakup. I love it! :D
