How it all came crashing right the whole way back – memories to set me entirely apart, tears upon a freeze-frame window-sill
Where I contemplated everything, bringing my harrowing day-to-day trivialities into complete perspective
All. Of. The. Way.
Dragging a half-packed Diadora bag on over this particular threshold time and time… and TIME a goddamn ‘gain – needing to appear to stay away from everything and absolutely anything all at once
Sprinting before I ever get to so much as fall
The mother, she just couldn’t bare it no more – her very own tears fallen upon my still adolescent bedroom floor
May as well be a basin forever set in place, for her pretty albeit hardened by now face
Awaiting
My
Sudden
Unanticipated
Albeit
Entirely
Suspected
Returm
On
Through
Her
Door
I will never quite be able to explain all of this pain to any of you
Truly unimaginable, grabbing at everything
and absolutely nothing
But. I. Did.
Clutching at nimble-fingered straws of their own accord
You never get to strut when your heart just ain’t in it from beginning to the very nearly end
Two decades ’til you and yours finally took
It upon yourselves to save me
Seems I am wholeheartedly back in the game…
For now, at least

Share and Enjoy !
