the broken home

Document

the walls have all cracked


the ceiling's caved in


the good of our smiles


didn't outweigh the sin


 


the floorboards uprooted, 


the doorways offset,


this place, once a home,


is now a victim of neglect. 


 


... but i don't even care that the dishes are broken


that the photos are missing


that the stuff has been stolen


i don't give a shit 


that the termites are fat


with the wood from stairwell,


I could care less. In fact,


the thing that breaks my heart


is that now i'm forced to see


that this shitthole of a house


reflects us, you and me. 


 


we've rotted inside, like these spoiled, 10-foot walls. 


and we didn't even care. we just didn't have the balls


to put it back together, and maybe not perfect or pristine,


a bit of glue would've helped... And a good scrubbing to keep clean.


 


maybe it was me. maybe it was you. 


maybe it wouldn't have mattered if we used the strongest glue.


maybe the walls could hear all the cruel things that were spoken.


maybe the house gave up on us, and preferred to just be broken.
