THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 215

Compelling Me

The eyes of my ex-crush
burned into me,
compelling me
to believe him—
to believe that Lindsey
is truthful.
The same Lindsey
who lied to me,
told me my ex-crush
was gay…
just so she could have him…
I echoed Gary.
“She’s a liar.”
My ex-crush stomped off,
weaving a frustrated hand
through his curls.
Gary put his arm around me.
He took the notebook from me,
flipped through the creased pages,
then tore them from the binding,
one by one by one.
Finally, he flung the fragments
into the air, so they fell silent
like snow at our feet.
