The Title Of This Poem Is ‘Fuckboys’

Losing you has been like
the incredible relief of an exhale
you have been waiting years
to take.

I didn’t realize I had been struggling
to swim to the surface for so long.

But here I am
inhaling something new.

And spitting you out like salty water. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
