Played This Game Before | A Poem by Scott Thomas Outlar

I’ve been listening to this song on repeat
all day
because it reminds me of you
and the first time we heard it together.

I don’t want to do this
and it’s killing me inside
because I know this can’t possibly work
and it hurts like hell to know what’s coming.

I was fine before we met.
I wasn’t lonely until we started seeing each other.
Now my work has been affected,
my mood has been affected,
my emotions have been affected…
Damn it,
just hit repeat again
and let this whole thing play out
as it must.
