Listen

written by: Rosie Persiani

Are you listening, Rosie?
You have a tendency
to space out and you need
to not do that right now.
There will be a day
Where your skin never felt his
Fingertips.
You’ll shed the skin cells
That you felt were tainted
By his.
No one noticed
Those specific skin cells
Even though they burned.
They burned
A bright white light
That made your soul awaken
Again.
But you got rid of it.
Rosie,
You will be okay.
You’re allowed to feel pain.
Even though you’re not sad.
Keep paying attention.
You can’t achieve those
Daydreams
If you aren’t facing
Reality.
I know you had to hide in them.
But now you don’t.
Those daydreams
Are a distraction.
Keep dreaming,
Because you don’t need
To let time slip by
Anymore.
