play it again/
just another taste/
dancing in the rain/ I think/

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2020

All it takes is one moment for something to change, one second...

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2020

He walks down the hall, lost in the monotony of school as it should be. Comfortable, mostly predictable, simple. Everyone living. How could he have known he’d lose a friend by day’s end? That that hug would be the last? She just needed a box of tissues and a new brush. But the result of an unfounded hatred will be the reason she never goes home.

we used to run
together
throw the ball
bring it back
throw the ball

we took the greatest naps
together
breathe in
curl up in your arms
breathe out

remember when we ate
together?
I thought that you made delightful brownies
you didn't

it was you and me
together
it was enough
it was all i needed

i try to recall us
together
as i spend countless nights
alone

the shelter people don't understand
together
they cannot love me
