BOOM

I slink back in my room

but I know it’s too soon

and catch the whiff of the fume

Of my earlier doom.

She’s left a note on the doona

“That’s life” is her tune

and my head just goes BOOM.

As the loneliness looms.

Epilogue

So sweet but with a dark side

She did so well to hide it

It was just like licking ice cream

With razor blades inside it
