Hi Jenn

by Jenn Henry

You said my name for the last time
The night before you died
Exhausted and terrified 
You lifted the oxygen mask from your mouth
And said, hi jenn
That was all you could muster
So much hung in the air left unsaid.
Hi jenn, I’m sorry.
Hi jenn, it wasn’t your fault.
Hi jenn, I shouldn’t have kicked you out.
Hi jenn, you are a disappointment.
Hi jenn, you did everything I wanted to do.
Hi jenn, I’m jealous and scared and tired.
Hi jenn, It’s almost over and I fucked up.
Hi jenn, help me.
Hi jenn, save me.
Hi jenn, I’ll never give you the satisfaction of my goodbye.
Hi jenn, pick up the pieces.
