Backlight

my heart
my head
they pound as one
I am a file
and you, you
are corrupted

GET OUT
what?
GET OFF MY SYSTEM
why?
YOU ARE A VIRUS
but

I’m on the list now
the scanner will delete me
wait!
this is permanent
I KNOW
you won’t get me back
won’t you stop to think
YOU ARE IN MY WAY

what way?
I see a file path here
it is not the way for you
not the you I see
the naked you in the mirror
you hate her, don’t you?

I am in a change
I am me – deleted
this file has not the strength
enough to move a molehill
enough to touch you here

NOW YOU ARE FOE
is this really goodbye?
last time was a fluke
and six times before
I DO NOT WANT YOU
anymore?

as the backlight flickers
my world dims
you don’t have me
I have no name
glowing
WHAT IS THIS
Glowing
neon footprints cross the black
they match my stride
I walk over your memory
and out

echoes remain
maybe they are mine
getting smaller and louder
the last time my arms hold yours
as the blade drives in
you’ve cut me
and you
