Sorry I didn't Text Back

Sorry I didn't Text Back

Thanks to Lyndsey Rush, @maryoliversdrunkcousin on Instagram for the inspiration to write poetry in this way. All of the inspiration came from her! 

 

Sorry I didn’t text back… 

it’s just that

I accidentally picked up an old journal and couldn’t put it down/ Is it narcissistic to be obsessed with my own words?

I went down a rabbit hole learning about white collar criminals and am shocked by how nonchalant I feel about their misdeeds /

I decided to pluck every single hair out of my chin all the while saying it’d be easier to just get it waxed /

I absolutely had to reorganize my bookshelf at that very moment /

I couldn’t stop thinking about how I wanted to be a baker when I grew up and WHY didn’t I follow that dream /

My phone died and I couldn’t be bothered to plug it in
