Last night was a true clusterfuck.
This morning, she’s thinking about taking a class
Flashbacks of a child making desperate promises she can’t keep
She learned there was no one who really cared
A victim of conditioned responses or lack thereof killing Heidi off
Inextricably separate, forever grieving the loss of her
When all it takes is to swallow it down whole and roll
Does she know how much it hurts?
