It's hard


It's hard





At work
at detention





with my boss
with my teacher
staring at me

staring at me
with eyes of rage
with eyes of rage
i'm bored






I'm tired
i am stuck here
i am stuck here
for an hour




till the end of





the day
i wait



i wait
to go home to

to go home to





hear her





laughing
to smell her cooking
the thought of

the thought of
her gets me through her gets me through
this




this
i miss her


i miss her
