Falling apart

I had won.

i was trying to smile,
but it was a smile of desolation.
inside, i felt only the pity and the terror and the waste of it all.
everyone i had ever loved, and who ever loved me- all gone…
all gone down…

and i don’t want to be brave.
i don’t want to be alone anymore.
i don’t want to be afraid.
i just want to be myself.


What happened to that little girl who came in here
looking for some sweets?

 She grew up.



you don’t know how much I regret
everything that I’ve done.
you left me behind
and now my soul is on fire
i'm burning in the wake of your rage;
choking in the shadows of your absence.

Where are you?

The loneliest moment
in your life
is when
you’re watching
your whole world
fall apart, and
all you can do is

because it takes ten times as long to put yourself back together,as it does to fall apart.

The End
