a moment lost

by Star   Aug 20, 2023


and as the clock approaches
the last minutes of the night,

I put on the noise canceling
headphones and imprison myself
within a bubble

it becomes hard to breathe
I use up the air left

but it pops

splattering regret all over,
specks of black stain my floor

this life is wasted on me
it should’ve been yours
