Anthony Witherspoon

By: Tori Shephard

Eating my thoughts,
Twisting my mind,
Her shadow passes through,
My words I can’t find.

She looks to me, waiting,
Her eyes pierce my heart,
I know what is coming,
I can’t let it start.

My head contains voices,
In sureness of the day,
They tell me to worry,
Her feelings have begun to sway.

She says nothing is wrong,
There is no reason for change,
I begin to go numb,
She’s acting so strange.

I realize it’s ending,
All too soon,
She turns to the kitchen,
I’m alone in this room.
