Marked Out

Ex you out
That’s how they do it
Right?
Sign the paper
New last name
Change all you have ever known
Telling yourself – “This is a good thing…it’s the Right thing to do”
Forcing yourself to never look back
Changing the station when you hear that song
Styling your hair however you like now
Cooking what you want at 1:00 A.M. in the morning
Leaving the dish in the sink overnight
Smiling because you can
Swearing you are someone else
The girl you once knew, she’s still there
Go get to know her again
But
Promise to never be bitter
