hurt

i’m hurting tonight

my heart aching in rhythm

with my shallow breaths

to whoever is keeping score,

add another tally below the column that says

“the ones who’ve thrown me away”

once again

i return to my pile

of old cards and dying plants

because people throw them away too

after they’re done using them

or have decided they hold no value

yes, my friends

they understand what its like

to hurt in the bottom of a trash can
