The chair is pulled from the table

And the doors on the cupboard stay open

Fish out in the pond stare back at you

And sometimes the wind goes through

You like you were some tree

Branches breaking off

Leaves dropping for no reason

 

You remember when the mention of snow

Made your mother ask if you were going hunting

And if you were lucky

She’d be able to talk about the smell of gun powder

And how hard it was to aim to kill

 

Sometimes your dreams follow you

As you stumble from bed

More tired than you were when

The thought of angels just started

To become something that might not be

Such a bad idea after all

 

Because you know that it’s coming

This mind of yours is rotting away

Because you saw your mother’s eyes

Go pale blue as she drifted away

And you hope you can smile

Like she did when there was nothing
