I Was

I Was

I am your cellphone wallpaper.

I am your favorite tune.

I am your lullaby.

I am your pillow.

I am the hidden photo on the pages of your book.

Then I became the calls you’re avoiding to take.

The unread messages in your inbox.

And then the name that causes you chest pain.

I was once all the beautiful things.

I’m afraid that soon I’ll be the memories buried deep in the back of your head,

And that small box hidden under your bed.
