Obvious Tragedy

Bullet holes
Casings everywhere
Broken glass
Cold despair

Crawling out
From underneath
Our wreckage
Accepting no defeat

We rise above
Break the heart open
Even further than
We thought it could expand
No longer choking

Double whammy
Strength in numbers
Titles discarded
We spoon the hunger

For a better state of mind
For a more loving
Way to find
One another

Absolve the pain
Break the chains

Without the expectation
To commit
To something we
Were never meant to
Find a fit

Heal the puzzle
Locate the stain
A true design
That we can frame

Serving dinner at a table
That was once
Shaken unstable

Now is bountiful
With nourishment to feed
Tear down the walls
Reveal the obvious tragedy
