Another old piece. I don't even remember writing it. But I like it, enough to post it, at least. Yes.

Burning stares as she walks past,

Fights to make it home at last.

A red light blinking- a burning text

Message that tells her what comes next.


She knows this scene- been here before

Deja vu, wrote the score.

Fingers itch and heartbeat races,

Avoid the answer, drown in paces.


Yes or no will poison surely,

Woeful fate clears much too early.

Look away, ignore the proof,

Won't burn herself on scalding truth.
