POEM| Are You Happy Now?

Are you happy now
That we’re barely speaking
And walking on eggshells around each other

Is it better now
That I don’t know how you’re doing
Or if you’ve been eating regularly

Are you happy now
That I need you
And I’m losing my mind because I can’t tell you

Is it better now
That we’re both lost
And you still wouldn’t apologize

Are you happy now
That there’s so much distance between us
And we have become strangers sharing an apartment
