hoop one
says i’m still lovable
even though you don’t love me

hoop two
says i’m still pretty
even though you’ve seen my ugliest

hoop three
says i still have control
even though you make me feel weak

hoop four
says you still want me in your life
even though you want her at night
you don’t see the acrobatics
i do behind the scenes
just to be your friend.

you don’t understand
how hard it is
to never feel good enough.

this is why it was easier
when you were gone.
i had to jump through zero hoops.

i’m tired of jumping.
i’m exhausted, ry.
