"Don't tell me the sky's the limit if there are footprints on the moon." ~unknown


Your shirt is in my closet, limp. Its sleeves
are mussed, its fabric wrinkled, worn from use.
It’s wet with tears that it’s absorbed; it breathes
them in and out and hides behind my shoes.
Its grey and messy form is like the kind
of comeback people squint at, trying to
discover meaning that the speaker

find,
the pointless and pathetic kind to use.
I took it just so I could take from you,
revenge for taking me, and lying too.

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.

This is great!

I espcially like the structure of the poem.
