things get better
the very moment you give up
the very moment you out loud deny
that there’s even the slightest chance of seeing light
the very moment your heart says “no that’s it…no more.”
supposedly things get better
but until they do
all i can do is stare the hands down
as they tick away the time to supposedly:
that unannounced moment when things will somehow magically become better
and i no longer will have to only suppose.
great piece 🙂
I often find it darkly humourous to give serious thought to clichés. I love the use of “supposedly” in this piece.
