How Bad It Is How bad it is when every note you play upon the keys sustains the void within the waiting soul; when it is accepted that this flow will not stop and bring an end to all these helpful faces; when your scent assaults my senses like a bludgeon and takes me to a day I want to bury; when an empty chest refuses to give way under the repeated blows of expectation and all experiences in time coalesce into a returning and enduring disappointment. How bad when the abiding thought is that at this point it could get no worse and then to be proved wrong and wrong and wrong.
