The place I used to have (a poem)

I’ve been erased from your life

I’m guessing it was time

Haven’t made any meaningful contribution

Spent so much time trying to find my own solution

Rejected all the answers you offered

I know now you were just trying to help me

Not change me

Useless to say “I miss you”

I know I haven’t been replaced

just displaced

Which is worse

Meaning you have no use for someone like me in the life you live now

I know I have no right to complain or claim a place

Just hope maybe there’s a space

I’ll shrink myself down as small as you want, I’ll make myself fit in any corner you give me

Lets try not to let it end this way

-Annette
