Sorry, I missed me

I drifted off into a reality where

soft sounds sadly rotted

into hard cacophony,

where people lived

loveless lives

and the arguments

that at one time

had seemed so far off

turned up on the doorstep,

wiped their dirty feet

on the old, worn out mat,

and entered in

to destroy the peace,

turned it into a relentless torture,

returned it to its distorted state.

Fortunately, there was no one in,

I missed me again.


◄ Noone else knows

Unattainable you ►

Thank you, Po. If you get a chance go to see the film 'Sorry We Missed You' by Ken Loach. Loved it.
