Me, oh my, hopeless I am;
Thud, thud, thud against my skin
—the punishment for my carelessness.
Shouldn’t I be studying for that test
Oh, fuck it.
Thoughts, rushing, pouring, drenching my mind.
Once upon a time perfection warmed the air
Once upon a time perfection sweetened the bitterness of the world
Silently reminiscing, delicately dwelling
My life, in a nutshell
