It’s my fault

My carelessness

I blame myself

For all of it

The logic


Without a trace

And I am left


Alone in the dark

It’s a muddy dark

The kind that clings to you

The kind that covers you

And dries so hard

Leaving its residue

I want to lie down

To breathe it in

To let it fill my insides

Until part of the earth

Is all I am

  1. Don’t do that. Your precious little one will need dinner before too long.

    Find a big strapping lad to hug you and hold you for 20 seconds. Breathe that in instead. Works wonders.
