Janzajma poetry breakup

Weak

‘Weak’ is about being stuck, not having moved on, and feeling weak because of it. You’re drawn to contact your old flame, but as soon as you do, the split second after you press send, you’re filled with regret. This ping-pong goes back and forth a few times until enough time has passed and you become strong.

I want to write in your yearbook
years after we’ve graduated
moved to different places
of our old selves we try to find traces

Even if I got access to your page
in what position is my ink
is there any left in a liquid state
or is it too little too late

My page is full of doodles
in various colors and shapes
the one you left has a coffee stain
the constant predicament it’s in, and who’s to blame

Why do I need to keep in touch
You’re guilty of it too
Thinking “hmm not again”
will you stay the course or abruptly switch your lane
