The Bandage and the Wound by Gabe Goodman
Released : 2018

“how would that make you feel”
she asks in hopes i’ll validate
something inscrutable with
an affirmation of love

when i feel bad, i don’t need you
and when i’m alright, you complicate that

“how would that make you feel
to arrive upon the realization
the numbness is now to you
both the bandage and the wound”
both the bandage and the wound

when i feel bad, i don’t need you
and when it’s alright it’s usually more complicated
