Band Geek III


That’s all you sent

When I texted you I liked you.

It’s fine,

It’s not like I’ve been wanting to tell you for years.

...That really makes it sound like I’m angry, huh?

Well, I’m not.

I’m hurt, yeah.

But I understand.

I was always weird and obnoxious as fuck.

I probably shouldn’t have said anything.

Should’ve kept my mouth shut, huh?

I guess that’ll be the end of that chapter of my life.

This is one of those pages I don’t really want to turn.

I don’t want to move on from this.

I liked you too much for too long,

And I depended on the memory of you—

The stupid hope that you might like me back,

The stupid hope that when I maybe someday told you, you’d return those feelings—

And you made this my favorite chapter.

I love you, Band Geek,

And as I drop the first handful of dirt onto the thing that might’ve been us,

I know I’ll always remember those days in algebra when I’d turn and tell you to stop kicking the back of my chair,

Or you’d challenge me to a game of chess,

Or I’d copy off your homework because I was always so irresponsible,

Or we’d joke that the world was kinda fucked,

Or just anything that wasn’t today.

Anything besides rejection.

I love you, Band Geek.

I fucking loved you.
