When You Said Those Words I Was Gone

“I like hot people,”

Piper says

And I cry because I feel


“Ew, that's gross”

A mom says 

And I go silent

Because she knows


She knows what I am

but she still says it

I'm no longer a person

I'm the sound of her voice

As it plays in my head

I'm the stiff of her back

I'm the words she says

without thinking

I'm that disgust


She'd said

“It's weird but

It doesn't matter to me"

It does though

doesn't it
