When Curiosity Doesn't Kill You……YOU LEARN. More Than Just a Breathe of Fresh Air

Today, the cycle continued. Never-ending empty holes and shattered glass. Glass that turned fine expression into bruised and bloody. The visualization seemed less obscure from the point of view we all knew. Up in rooms where ears would listen, but bodies felt numb. Numb to the core, as violence rang through them, wondering if it would cease soon. The question was not when, but how. Knowing we were out of harm’s way, she would take the fall for us all. Up here, it seemed like a sanctuary far away from the disarray around us. Oblivion suited our needs presently. Even a stereo failed us. Our spirits were held back with irony, only wanting to break free and rip apart this establishment. Down there, never-ending hatred had been thrown back and forth, like our weathered ears could not hear. Did she really think restraining him from his subservient and derelict home would work? Deep within us, we vowed to stray. As we peaked out from our havens, we did nothing but stare. Stared at the repulsion we called life. Emptiness prevailed as the shattering of contempt took place for his lack of a high. Engaged were our eyes, as our apprehension took the best of us. Recollections of an uncontrollable fiend, tearing apart a home, stairway and all, graced our intact minds. We thought of only one thing; think happy thoughts is what she would say. As the tone of a phone rang hushed but clear, we were forced to say, sorry friend, we can’t play today.


 

Deep within us,

we vowed to stray.

As we peaked out from our havens,

we did nothing but stare.

Stared at the repulsion we called life.

We thought of only one thing;

think happy thoughts is what she would say.

As the tone of a phone rang; hushed but clear,

we were forced to say,

sorry friend,

we can’t play today.
