"It's just that...I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe's way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is."


I hear the distant yells,
surrounding me.
Whispers of memories flit across my
mind.
Long nights, dark rooms.

Where are you?
Why am I alone again?

A baby wailing,
reaching out for the mother
who has slipped away.
The darkness swallowing her.
The loneliness too much to bear.

Where are you?
Why am I alone again?

Such a disappointment.
Another lie, another slip of the tongue.
Lights off, the TV dim.
She left, go back to sleep.

Hush baby, everything will
look better in the morning.
