We are young

self.JPGHer place is underneath the laundry she left to decompose last month.
Her house becomes a Havisham, a destination long forgotten.
The clocks stop, the walls and windows grow grayer.
The plants in her window slouch from their negligent mother.
The machine archived voicemails into ancient history.
The friends she never called back, their pictures on the walls
like portraits of dead saints, they gaze in eternal judgment.
This purgatory her mind built that she lives in day after day.   
She will never leave it behind, because how can you escape
a prison others deem as fictitious.

-Tina
