Emma, you didn’t have to try that hard
because no one remembers you either way.
Signed a check to make sure you’d stay silent.

Why lie, they forgot what you even look like.
And that's treason because they're the ones
who paid so much to keep your tired looks.

Remember when they yelled at your co-worker about some spilled milk?

Yet, it smelled that way inside
so it's hard to say if it was even the worst thing.

And I can’t defend you, well I can behind closed doors,
or else I'll get my ass kicked.

Another glorious dull decay
for these friends of convenience.
A topical charade to converse about,
they’ll bust out the milk bones
when you plot the grounds. (No doubt!)

Did they really think I would forget?
A lifetime’s worth of vicious whispers.
An avarice for being fashionably correct,
hard to believe I did not listen to my friends.

I didn't say anything but it's best to keep opinions in line
cause if she hears it wrong it is relationship suicide.

No one is living with you.
Not a candidate to say I would too.

But I wish I was.
Or maybe I don’t.
Can you help me decide?
No, you won't.

What the hell do you want?
Lying on the application.
Deceiving description in tiny treaties.
I've had enough.

So worn out by your callous disguise.
You don't remember me.
It’s so embarrassing.
Don’t lie to me, don't lie to me!

My god, you got nothing better to do.
Than to think about
how they didn't want you all those years ago too.

I can't recall this purchase.
But now I'm under the heat lamps;
dissection seems well deserved rather than misplaced.

Relocating time
I did not have the nerve to replace.
With people so invested in years ago,
I’ll be back when they get over it, let me know!

Emma, Emma
Who am I?
Please remember if you can.
