Fallen Friend

Updated on October 30, 2015

My sister's headphones are cutting her off
from what is real.
Her blank gaze doesn't see much
past the tinted glass.
My legs are tucked up to my chest,
my arms wrapped around them,
trying to keep myself from falling apart.
My mother and father
are holding hands
as the scene rushes past our car.
Each one
has something to hold onto
while
my something
lies fallen in a box.
My tears
fall.
My heart
falls.
My emotions
fall
apart.
I keep myself
held together
as my sister
bops her head to music
and my parents
hold each other up
with their hands.
I hold myself
together
with sticky tears
and shaky hands
as my fallen friend
awaits our arrival.
