Comment on this Work


how could you not prepare
for the sorrow waiting at the
second turn on the left?
you know these roads
all lead to heartbreak

how could you not know
the pain being amassed
at each stop in this journey
spooned into the sunsets
dished out at each door?

that barely two turns in,
the heart screws would slip off
you would fall in the mud
and not even know it,
staring stupidly at the sky

when did you stop listening
to the directions from inside?
how could you keep on
running those red lights?
I swear it never stops
