There is a comfort an ease.
Perhaps, akin to a beloved book
The one that can never be replaced.

“I thought about how love was always the thing that did that - smashed into you, left you raw. The deeper you loved, the deeper it hurt.” Wally Lamb, She's Come Undone

Long ago are the days, praying for rain.

The precious present, the future, one in the same.

Along the cream pages, stories for my mind.

A family telling its riddle from the start of opening credits.

A lost waif pining over windmills.

Falling over the waterfalls.

Gagging on craggy little pills.

Yet, like thrift store denim,

indifference came in.

Fading the starched sheath.

Anew, it loosened the seams.

There is a comfort and ease with

‘she has come undone.’…

A comfort and ease to giving in…in which to go on.

Trying to leave a dysfunctional family is like holding a snowball in the rain. As soon as, you have enough pliable resentment...enough to throw away. It melts. And, you have to start all over again.
