Bad Apple

My ex was not

The person I should have been with

And it took me

Way too long to realize it

But I finally did

And for some reason

I just wish

I could cut someone out

Of my life

As if they never existed

Not because I am

Hurt not because I am

Sad but because I just

Am the kind of person

That cuts the bad spot out of an apple

Before they eat it

And not during

I don’t want to sit there

And nibble around

A rotten spot

When I could just be

Freely chomping

Living as if the rot

Was never there to begin with
