I Saw My Ex on LinkedIn


Your picture popped up today

and your hair looks different.

It’s smooth and frames your face,

in a professional way,

Since you’re a VP of marketing now.

When I knew you,

you were a vagabond musician,

equipped with a fro of fire and

anyone could spot you from a mile away,

a dot of rust among the multitudes

and cacophony of Hollywood Boulevard

with icy blue eyes

cold like a lie.

All those moments

flood my mind,

tangled sheets

and soft laughter,

lips grazing,

inhaling your exhale,

so much fiction and warmth.

But, there was nothing like the frigid spike

of your betrayal

after so much truth.
