i tried to remember, but i couldn't recall why we had collided.

angry strangers rattling our empty buckets.

thieves in smeared lipstick. knocking on the tomb of want. 

wolves with broken fangs defeated by the hunt. 

fretting my words. digging in my wounds. 

every choice deepening the flood.

tearing out the pages. standing in the rain. arguing with the thunder.

i knew the sky would fall. i wanted it to smother us.  

angry because the world had slipped away.

humbled by time. all our candy turned to poison.

while we waited for a day that would never come.
