i’ve forgotten quite a bit
about how i felt about you.
i know i felt a love i hadn’t before with you
but that’s about the only thing 
i know these days.
I suffered from debilitating, lingering 
pain over that heartbreak for years
and now i feel like it happened to someone else.
like empathizing with another's grief
rather than it belonging to me.
i’m not sure if what i feel now is relief
it’s not really bitter, it’s not really sweet,
not really both, or even neither.
more like bland, morbidly plain
like something i have no problem
throwing away.
