i cried, yesterday

I cried, yesterday

On the edge of town, not far from the bank.

I hadn’t made it that far in months

But the melancholy drove me out,

The golden warmth lulling me in

To a false sense of security,

A blanket of calm that wrapped around

My sunken shoulders, bent with shame.

I had no direction but getting to town,

The place that was always so bustling,

A hive of activity, now with no bees,

The life was sucked from me and the cold inside

Reduced me to tears and I slumped on the floor.

A young girl looked sympathetically

Down at my body, sure I was homeless,

Too scared to go near me, I knew how she felt.
