Scribbled

October 20, 2017

I see a little house on the hill

and children’s names scribbled across the walls.

Their memories long forgotten,

but our story has just begun.

The crayon starting to flake away

as you pull farther from me. I see the pain

in your eyes, and can only imagine

the trouble I caused you. The faint echo

of a child’s laughter taunts me as I think of you.

Your face grows with disgust as you look at me.

My façade is starting to fade away. My scars

and cuts are visible, and you don’t understand.

Your words reassure me that I am a good person,

but you say you are just busy. I never understood

that line. You know the typical it isn’t you it is me.

But I love all of your imperfections, and think that you only

deserve the best. But our story will just end up

scribbled across an abandoned wall.
