Forget me forever

by apoorvmat

It occurred to me
As I read
Your message on Whatsapp
That I no longer
Depend on your approval
Or admiration
You are deep
In your inebriated meanness
I don’t have to
Drown with you.

Do me a favor
And forget me forever
Don’t be jealous
Or be fake-proud of me
Even if we need
To get to the same place
We don’t have to arrive
At the same time
And I’m absolutely fine
Taking a longer route.
