Temporarily Broken

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 15, 2013 by dc

Dinner on the stairs,
A life unfair,
Makeshift dreams
And Tupperware,

Waking on the couch again,
The same old game
Of cat and mouse,
A house that echoes

Let’s go,
Let’s go,
Let’s go.

A slow routine
Of stumbled walking,
Mumbled talking
And drowned soliloquies,

A bed that teases lullabies
Then goes and cries
Into the pillow,

Curtains billow,
Whispering your name.

You’re temporarily broken,
Thoughts unspoken,
Bought with tokens

And all this because
You danced in the rain.
