A strip of light I don't want to see.
A smooth surface, broken underneath.
Rolling tears and derisive laughter,
Emptying words; "There's no Happily Ever After".
Red and blue don't always make purple,
"I love yous" can break hearts too.
Empty lines, uniform and strange,
Unspoken words, clamoring for a page.
A misshapen pen, the blue of the sky,
A shattered reminder that some birds never fly.
Accusatory words, with an empty "sorry",
A useless bandage plastered with "it's okay."
Echoing melodies, flat and pale--
Still haunting my head--
They won't let me be,
They can't let me breathe.
