from once laughing eyes...

from once laughing eyes…

I’ve been dismissed;
shut off like a leaking faucet
dripping endlessly
from an old nagging pipe
I’ve been here before
on the other side
shutting down,
shutting off,
turning away when I shouldn’t have,
drowning in shallow waters

So this is how it feels;
empty;
hollow like a rabbit’s hole
Just enough room for emotions
to scream in and out of
I have caused hurt;
can hear the blood dripping
from once laughing eyes Priya Patel
and so now I hurt

Another turning point? Possibly
And now it’s time to start all over
