We sat there, (both of us) listening to the talking heads yelling from the television. It's too loud, will you turn it down before you leave?
Black, mildewy smoke clouded the windows, leaked in through the cracks. (The cracks you created.) I don't give you a chance to get better?
Fun time is over. We hugged and prayed to anyone that would listen. (I've driven over a thousand miles inside a car. A thousand miles is too far inside a car.)
We ran outside when we heard the top half of the building shatter. Mice crazily careened down the street, but they had great success. Better than us.
Eleven claws and a scream rained down. I sacrificed my leg. (You didn't look.)
Do you need a lot of what you got to survive?
(Sparkles, shimmers, and shines.)
The mice ran at the sewers. No one stopped them. A huge beast yelled and bitched. We can't fit into the sewers. Cry, sweet love.
It began to rain, and birds danced with their fallen feathers. Smoke filled the streets, my thoughts, and your accusations. I hated you.
(Everything you ever thought, you tried to regret.)
(Everything you ever said, I tried to forget.)
Some hoped for death or god or the right of way.. Old couples lying in their bed, holding hands.
(It hurts too much.)
(I only write when I die.)
