The room was dark.

Sweat poured

from pores

to heart

to skin

to sheets

that held

houses drowning

in pools

of fear

collected from

racing hearts

held stagnant

and hurt

from abandoned


and created


of hope

As i watched those

that dared to leave

so they could live

run and

run and


in to unlit rooms

of 5.31 AM
