We Were Falling Apart
« on: April 23, 2020, 04:27:55 PM »
I've morphed into a caterpillar trapped in a cacoon;
face hidden with my arms and my legs,
breathing in this despairing reality
—a cry bubbles deep within; it overflows as silent tremors—

We have cracks in our foundation:
the paint chips and the walls of our home
are falling apart just like our relationship.

Every harsh, cruel word you spoke
merely mirrored my own musings;
the clink of the shot glass slamming against the table
 creates an echo of your billowing voice as I sit alone and weep.
