Darkness with strobes of headlights

Drunken laughter sends chills

Fading voices invite childish tears

Silent sing song rhymes resonate

Fear prickles trumping the pain, shhh

Eyes wide, searching the emptiness

Imaginary friends whisper regret

Mommy’s lips beget forgiveness

No lullabies to drape in sleep

Footsteps linger, heartbeat races, shhh

Counting dreams in a dreamless night

Fingers holding hope on a tightrope

“She forgot me” the chorus of loneliness

A daughter’s devotion laid bare 

In the car’s tiny trunk, shhh
