It's almost time. Chin to knee listening to the waves crash in my head. Gone. Gone. They're gone again. They never wait long enough after I leave so that I may come back.

It's almost me. In the grin the window wears when its raining. Orange fingerprints of light pressing against the heavy sigh of the glass. As it listens to my words choking down their punctuation.

It was so many years ago. The girl always with the broken ladder in her throat. Waiting on a voice that couldn't escape.

It's always time. Dirty hair caught in fractions of itself. The tug of reality dragging down my pants. Anxious thoguhts draw their bath.

Connecting the red dots that lead back to mirror.

Why is it dark?

Because it is.
