I try to join in…but keep losing my footing
Tripping on all that’s left behind
Skin ripped from my knees and shins, I begin to bleed out
I grab the broom and tear back the rug
Shrieks and shudders echo around me
Tackled to the ground and ripped apart as I attempt to remove the disarray
I am pushed out the door that once was of comfort
They don’t uncover the smut below
So naturally now I must go
