everyone
that once
loved me
is gone

i never thought
things could
go this
wrong

father’s been
killed, think
i’ll tag
along

bubbles float up
in this cold
star-lit
pond

was he mad?
was he mad?
was it all an act?
should the threat 
of a lie
ever warrant a mask?

to cloak a heart
leave love in the dark
lest it be sentiment
only soon to pass?

moon is
so bright
it’s blinding
my eyes

never thought
it would take
so long
to die

in the tresses
of my hair
fishes swim
asking ‘why?’

darkness
hits my head
and i leave
no reply
