I Blocked You Today

I blocked you today
because I was ready
to delete you
and your memories
from my life.
I was ready to clean my news feed,
getting rid of your dust. 

I’m over seeing what you like
and where you are.
I’m over waiting for one like
or one comment from you.
I’m done trying to impress you
when you’re probably not even looking.
I’m done fighting for your attention
when you’re giving it to someone else.

I blocked you today
because I wanted to remember who I was
before you came into my life
and made me hate myself
I blocked you because
I have to love myself.
I blocked you so I could post things for me
instead of trying to send you a message.

Or maybe I’m trying to send
one final message to you:
you can’t reach me anymore,
you now belong to a list of strangers
I’ve never met.
You now can’t like my pictures
or see my posts
or see me.  TC mark
