For The Best

The Moon Howls At The Wolf


A story about rememberance.


The wooden door flies open;

A child frantically clings to its handle.

It screams for you to return to them

With a voice reeking of desperation.

And while tiny feet scrape the rough concrete,

Leaving minuscule traces that they were once here,

You know that all evidence of you has been erased.

Except for that one screaming child

Who will soon hush and grow up.

Truly, this was for the best.
