gap in the head

feeling like something was due

unpaid bill

kick to the groin

smack to the back of the head

waiting waiting

for the next bit of shit

to arrive

wanting to get over something

no name no pack drill

no notice no nothing

for the other shoe to fall

& if they knew

this was the result of how they were

never getting past their own violence

could they ever change?

& some of us go seeking drama

fill that vacant waiting space

as others avoid excitement

hiding in corners to try to erase

but the feeling always remains

& knowing how you were raised

does nothing ever to help you

avoid this empty waiting game

for that other shoe

to drop
