No one asks when I go away
No one looks where I am
No one thought to miss me
Or wonder if I got banned.

No one noticed I don't post anymore
No one even checks
No one cares about my story
Or my prayer requests

I'm just a memory on a screen
black against light green
A cache to be purged
A hundred pointless words
Like a spent gladiator
crawling in the colosseum dust
who can count on his remaining limbs
all the people he can trust.
Like the one who stands behind him
cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
