Remember me?

Hello you
Remember me?
I’m still who I used to be
Times change
So do we
I have
You too
I’m still the one you used to know
The one you loved
I’ve made mistakes
More than most
I’ve lived
I’ve learned
I’ve lied
Still doing it
And you?
You still there?
Do you care?
Or do I scare the shit out of you?
Do you want to come closer?
(Crass)
I’ve changed
I’m despised
Resented
Mistrusted
Labelled:
Devious
Manipulative
Conman
Trickster
Liar
Charmer
Self-harmer
Just words
They don’t hurt
Other things do:
I’ve been trodden on
Walked over
Kicked to the floor
And kicked again whilst down there
And again
And again
Throttled
Bottled
Thrown down stairs
Robbed
Mobbed
Beaten
Burned
Disowned
Spurned
Displaced
Misplaced
Abandoned
Forgotten
Do you want to come closer?
Rain
Wind
Cold
Illness
Injuries
Broken bones
Broken heart
Cuts
Burns
Accidents
Encounters
Visitors
Overnight stays:
Hospitals
Police stations
Just thought I’d check in
I’m alright actually
I’m on the road now
Not on the street
I’m travelling
On a journey
Do you want to come closer?
I’m still here
Remember me
