Another Walk

September 16, 2011

It was a happy night,
I was home from a friend's
Chatting, laughing
In an agreeable mood.
I asked my mom
If we could go for a walk
She said
"Sure, why not?"
It started out fine
We walked and talked peacefully
But of course
It hit that disagreeable subject
Just as I felt it would
We argued
My voice broke
So did hers.
I know she shed a tear or two.
I know I shed a sea.
I flexed my fingers
Tightly around
My water bottle, nervously.
We tried to talk
It out in a calmer way
But, that just doesn't seem;
Quite right.
That subject is just....
Unapprouchably wrong.
So we walked in silence
And I wiped my eyes
Took a deep breath
And tried not to cry
When we got back home,
I went to wash my face
Turns out:
My eyeliner lied.

This is rather beautifully written, though it makes no sense and seems out of context to me. Would you care to explain the story behind it, if there is one?
