Throes

Throes….
Today is:
Fits~of anger
Shivers~of cold
Anxiety~pit of stomach
A tear~slipping silently down one eye
Seconds, Minutes, Hours, a Shift~monotony
Disappointment~denial
Hope~ridiculous
Bastard~running record
Frustration~unfair
Firsts~supposed ‘lasts’
Pills~placebo
Disinterest~a fault
Cell Phone~link
Run~unnoticed
Peeps~evil
Deadly Alive~one foot
Age~variable
Grey~telling
Stopping~momentarily
Starting~over and over again
Obsessing~rumination
Running~into the arms of the devil
Scared~childlike
Mistakes~too many to count
Again~familiarity
Fatigue~early death
Neglect~youth
Denial~unknowing
Swallowing~pride
Kinship~uneven
my brain through her well lined eyes~rare
the day she was born~uneventful
Today is tomorrow and the next also.
