one hot mess / trouble-stop

one hot mess (sijo)

she stands in the corner with hands clenched tight around her glass
tells herself to cool down a little before the madness sets in
knowing it will take over as it always does; her heart hurries


(title from t.k.k.)


we keep wandering in,
because we’re not
sure where else to go,
or because we hope
it will be different
this time than the last,
or because we
hope it will be something
like what it was before

some things stay
the same and some
things never change
and sometimes there’s
a surprise waiting in the corner

oh, it’s surely trouble
but we return

a little more
jaded each time

each time
still hoping
for a miracle.
