For Thabiso

October 17, 2014

today was a bad day

i cried and cut

and skipped Cilift

again

today was dark and long

i want to say i understand

and pretend it’s okay

again

today was another bad day

i want to tell you how mine was

and hope it makes yours better

again

today was heavy

with the smell of death

and in those last five minutes

we were too late

We’ve always been

late
