When I see you, it all comes back to me.

The happiness, the pain--

Everything unfair--

It all comes back.

And I'm so overwhelmed,

I can't feel the


That I should.


I'm a blank slate;

I close off all that can

Hurt me.


I held your words to heart,

Yet you decided to

Do their opposite.


This game--

This game of ignoring--

Took its toll.


You lied; you evaded.

So I'll do the same.

You don't know me,

I don't know you,

And I won't feel the emotions

You put me through.

Two poems for the price of one. I read your poem through and then read the words in bold on their own. They both say the same thing but in different ways and thus invoking different feelings.
