  1. You stare with your cracked grin
    much like a Cheshire cat
    let’s see how deadness feels
    when you’re discarded
    in the recycle bin
    I’ll keep the memory chip
    and grind it in my workshop

  2. Freedom from Brokenness

    This phone
    was my last defense to
    not letting you go

    It has been 5 years
    since we last spoke
    last smiled
    last touched
    last kissed

    This phone
    stored our love
    our life together

    I chose to live on
    without you
    without us
    I break our tie
    to set both of us free
