, , , ,

eyes wide
i try to hide
huddled in my home
with every thud
and every crash,
this place gets wet and cold.

the trees go down,
all around,
there’s nowhere left to go.
life is changing,
but this is all i know.

im a broken animal,
i’ve lost my wings
don’t know what to do
with the rest of me.
they took my home,
here all alone,
surrounded by shambles
of what i once owned.
