Embracing Apathy

March 8, 2008
By Sara Gervais, Watertown, MA

Glares fueled by years of bottled up resentment
pierce their hearts

In agony, they find a way to continue
an unbearable existence,
constantly pondering what could have,
would have been

Regret fuels their fear of old wounds reopening
Fear fuels their hate, a distorted love,
leading to unnecessary tragedy

“Goodbye hate, Farewell love,” they murmur, embracing apathy.
