We bonded over
being broken

Watching other missing
puzzle pieces drink
their weekend away

We belonged perfectly,
sitting at the bar

Words became pictures,
the commotion our score

Glasses drained


We were out
the door

Rely on yourself
and the world
will follow

Own your words
by choosing

Command yourself,
stand up straight

I watched a person
fall and roll down
a snowbank

I could not stay
home any longer

The paint is peeling

All I heard was the ocean

No signs of rain

Footsteps to a forgotten memory

All parks are closed

A lonesome walker passes by

What seem like hours
were only two footsteps
from point A to B
