I’m sincerely so sorry┬áif
my flowery and educated words
ignited something inside you.

And I’m so sorry if
I didn’t know you
measured my Christian worth
in red cupped servings

So sorry if
I’m a rambling mess every time
I post —
(every single time, you say) —
my mental illness
must unavoidably impose
on your day

I’m sorry if
have obviously affected

Haven’t I gotten under your skin if
you so bizarrely attacked me,
as cowards do?

I must have if you
refuse to speak me
in person,
because (as you say) I’m a fake.


I’m sorry
you’re a sorry little person.

I don’t give a shit
about what you think of me.
what you say about me.

    In a social media world full of faux outrage, fake anger, and pretend feelings, you have as genuine a heart & soul as I have come across.
