THREE STEPS TOWARDS NO

It is so
cold
outside
and there
you are,
on the carpet,
snapping the
matches
one
at a time
snap
snap
snap
I love you
I love you
I love you
and now
I am sadder
than before
but less
confused,
clearer
clearer
clearer

Come on now
just look
at all that
broken
wood

  1. Aw, heartbreaking. 😦

    Admirably direct and simple though. Splintering wood… seems just right.
