Random Poem:

Home is where the Wine is

walls filled with bubbles,
bursting and cracking.
light switches useless, I
twist the bulb for light, soothing
as it gives the slightest heat
to chill damp air.
this house, as is implodes
crushes our attachments and
we are cold. wine flows and we
forget our obligations.
empty swings. Deflated balloons.
wooden doors swollen too big for
the doorway. a household full of
rubbish yet hallow.
we cannot come back here.
it’s already gone.
