The Request ~ Sean Wai Keung

hello when i saw your friend request

i was pretty confused i recognised your name

but there were like three people in your profile

picture + i didn’t recognise any of them at first i thought

you were someone i met at a poetry reading or maybe

that girl who i think might be stalking me but

we had no mutual friends oh wait that’s when it hit me

aren’t you that girl from that school i used to go to the one

who always cried when you got ‘bad’ grades yeah i

remember you now your tears were so pretty but your eyes

held back the ugliest smile is that really you

i only accepted your request to find out

if that really is you +

if that really is you

then i just want to take this chance to say


your grades

were always

so much better

than mine.
