i love this so much
This actually made me cry…
When I was 10, I saw
my first episode of Law & Order, SVU
a woman screamed
and her pretty pink dress ripped
the scene cut to black but then
she sat in a station
hair mussed and mascara running
and she seemed broken
and that’s when I began to prepare
for the inevitable.
I wrote a crappy poem earlier.
at least I’m writing on a semi-regular basis again
She slips in and out
until she is no longer
sure of what is real and what isn’t.
Flashes of memories enter her mind;
things that she thought had been buried
wrap their arms around her
until she sinks into a familiar haze.
The fog does not lift
until the girl is left alone,
drenched in sweat,
while the sky fades to
cotton candy pink.
