Numbers: The Erasure

“three standard deviations”

i am the normal
to your standard deviation of 3.
i love your flirtations, yet
they trigger a lot of “unworthy” in me.

i fear your love,
your affection,
your adoration.
like water poured on rock,
all is lost to evaporation.



since before we separated,
parted in the night,
i’ve been trying to erase you.
all images removed from each
social media site.
wishing it were so easy
to do this in my mind.

in letting go of the good
and the bad memories,
i see now that i was
also working to erase me.
twenty years of my life

now i do my best to
embrace it all, so i can
once again

  1. Great post Tiffany, I so enjoy seeing moments where you have breakthroughs☺️ I’m sure you have a lot of amazing memories. It is a shame to pretend like those never existed just to avoid the painful memories. It is all part of your beautiful and unique story😘
