Hello

Hello (By Cat Matchuk)

It has been years since I knew who I was.
What I stood for,
and now I fall, I believe no longer.
I protect no one.

Goodbye, my love.
Hello, old scars. To resurface without invitation makes you cruel.

It’s been days since my last slip.
What I strive for,
and now I run, I shine no longer.
I protect no one,
not even this heart.

Goodbye, my love.
Hello, old demon. To paint a new face doesn’t hide who you really are.

You are cruel.

It’s been
seconds
since my last life.
My life.
What I love,

not clear

not clear
anymore.

I can give no longer
I protect no one,
No one,
not even
myself.

Goodbye, my love.

Hello.
