Everyone says I seem to be doing a lot better
about the fact that you left me when I asked you to.
I always refer them to the obvious clues:
the warmest winter I’ve ever felt,
or the fact that I’m eating a lot less without you around,
and that maybe now I’ll finally weigh what I did when I was
a freshman in high school; I’ve always wanted to be skinny.
I’ve kissed 3 boys since you’ve been gone.
I only remember 2 of them
and I only liked one.
I’m trying to remember what kissing you feels like,
but every time I think of your mouth,
my stomach turns, and this makes me want to eat less.
So yeah, I guess you could say things are looking up.
