The Other Girl (Poem #106)

Shades of red
shades of you
the lies we shared
my mistakes with you
I cannot undo

Shades of blue
shades of me
putting all the blame on you
even though all along,
I knew

Her existence
that, I am aware
couldn’t quite make sense
of this tangled love affair

An hour together
before you leave me for her
you touch her
the same way you touched me
you hold her
with your hands still stained with my color

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
