"Shut Out Forever"
by Sean Powers
July 14, 2003

You wanted to shut me out.

You decided to shut me out.

You did shut me out.

I am out, and out for good.

You were so swift at shutting me out

You made it clearer than carving the words

“I want to shut you out forever” in my skull.

Were all the blood soaked memories worth it?

Were all the days and nights nothing?

Obviously they were not.

I say my goodbyes

I shed no tears.

I will not look back at you.

It is my turn to accept the fact

That I want you out forever.
