"free the nipples"

I beat a guy

who had a crush on me 

at beer pong

 

we got stoned

in the Walmart parking lot

when my car wouldn't start

 

6 months later

he sends me a Facebook invite

for a "FREE THE NIPPLES" rally

 

when i complain about 

my itchy armpits

and you say something about how i don't shave

 

do you realize

how fucking

dumb you sound

 

 

 

AWAY STATUS

snorting coke

off the bathroom floor

of my ex-boyfriend's soul

 

purpose

is too restrictive

a thing

 

 

 

lol

standing in the corner

of an ex-boyfriend's bedroom

i am wearing nothing

but a dunce cap & socks

 

he laughs

while playing league of legends

down the hall

 

when you tell me

that scratching my bites

is the worst thing i can do

 

i think to myself

 

you have no idea
