cruel jokes.

i will be alright someday. she whispers that under the cloudy violet skies. her friends are dancing to the pop tracks and she’s desperately trying–she escapes to the bathroom–

finds her reflection and stares at her intently

she softly touches the glass wishing this was a dream.

reality is a cruel joke. 



please don’t say goodbye again,

it’s breaking my heart.

I didn’t realize how lonely I was,

until you came and we talked for an hour.

it wasn’t long enough…

and soon you’ll be going home again

when this was once your home

this is heartbreaking,

I have to stop dwelling on the past.
