the quandary.

Thanks to my little sister for making me do her homework — because, and I quote, ‘she didn’t want to think’ — I have something sort of substantial to give you, guys. Sort of.

she shrivels and cowers
in her corner.
heart in hand, she looks
and you shiver.
hurt from a love forlorn
it did not last forever.

do you avert your gaze
in indifference?
do you take her hand
in a kind caress?
when she is your hurtful past
the cause of you empty present.
