I was bluffing but I can’t unsend

I remember how you would torture me with emails when I was twenty

Which began with “I’m not a fan of getting blown off”

And would end with “have a good one”

How is it that ten years later

I am sending the same emails

Through your perspective

To my best friend

And like you, im not afraid

That she’ll call me out for bluffing

But that she’ll never take the time to write me again

Oh why didn’t I just say

I care about you

And you hurt my feelings

And hope that, one day

She would write back

But I haven’t emailed you again yet

Have I?

So I guess this is the way it ends
