I say “ok”

I say “ok”


Because the new guy doesn’t exist


I say “ok”


Because you don’t listen and I cannot repeat myself more than I already have


I say “ok”

Because I am not put on this earth to convince you of what you already know


Or to make you wake up to the blinders you willingly wear



I say “ok”

Because to you I am an object

I am incapable of having emotions, feelings, thoughts, desires that do not involve men


I say “ok”

Because you still assume I am watching episodes

Because you still assume I’m living a life of leisure


I say “ok”

Because that is the only word I can form


I say “ok”

Because I have wasted years, days, hours, minutes with you and you did not absorb a single second of them


Because I have opened my heart many times and it’s been as memorable as a pebble on the ground that you walk right over


Because your obsession starts and ends with an idea of me that is not me


Your anger starts and ends with a me that I am not


I say “ok”

Because your life and experiences will always trump mine in your imaginary competition


I say “ok”

Because there is nothing else for me to say
