"All is well" he said

eyes burnt with a different truth

wishing himself dead


evidence of storms

trail through his sad, soaked story

rain can't hide real tears


she struggles for words

the magic ones don't exist

it breaks her own peace


both sat in silence

buried pages six feet down

flowers bloom from shit

    The abrupt ending packs a terrific wallop. Perfect ending and a very sad one also. Love it!
