Jason Grady


I don't get why you say you're not a poet

I'm not sure if you know what real poets write about

cause they write things awfully similar to you

And if you say you're not a poet then what the hell are you doing

writting beauifully about such a tragic event

because if you're not a poet then you'd be able to take the comments and all the questions easily

you wouldn't have removed them to protect the memory of what's left

while you can

before it's posted and exposed

before strangers place themselves in your thoughts and actions

strangers like me


I  do think i get why you took away your ask button though

and  the ability to comment

I bet you'd take away the like button if you could

I would if I was you

because having thousands of peolple likeing what haunts you can't feel ok
