My Childhood Died
My childhood died all soaked in blood without even a box to be buried in.
I used to say even though I’m twenty-three, I feel like I never grew up.
I can’t say that anymore.
I grew up overnight.
So quickly and painfully that the ache in my heart feels like it will never heal.
I wish I could go back, but you can never go back.
All that is left to me is the future.
A future to run to and be safe from the past.
I’m going to go out and see a couple of movies
All of which I will cry through
But it beats lying in bed all day and crying until I pass out.
The only place worse than where I am now is where I’ve been before and I promised myself I would never set foot on that path again.
So keep your promise Sugabelly.
