hallway

a voice

thick &

shadowed

like a

darkened

hallway

leading to one

word.

 

no.

 

no just go thanks anyway.

 

a voice

thick with

exhaustion.

 

or maybe pain or maybe

bitterness i don’t know.

 

& wilting flowers lack of water.

 

& i used to think

it was so

much more

beautiful.

 

& the stars glitter like flecks of metal & the moon glows.

 

you included me

in the laughter.

 

but i could tell

it was

mostly obligatory.

 

or maybe

it wasn’t.

 

just feels

like a cage

i can’t

escape from

without breaking

something.

 

but why would i?
