Lurid lime green

Painted nails

Confidence is swaying

Until the cold floor

Hits hard

How can anyone

Ever get back up

After a fall like that

It's impossible to consider

Another way out

Because there was never

Anyone else

A chip

Off the old block

For somebody like you

You're just crying

Lightening strikes

A destructive chill

It waits forever

Stuck in a hotel room

That feels like a broken home

Staring outside the window

It's still raining

Droplets bang on the panes

Begging you to let them in

Just one more time

The question is

Can you forgive

And forget

Tripping over the past

That leaves you frozen

And barely breathing.
