I thought long and hard about itThe way I do about most things
And it hit me,
Like a semi.
My heart sank as if pulled down by invisible weights
As I looked at all the faces I took a liking to
No matter how solid the walls I could build around them,
No matter what bedtime stories I told myself,
The only constant in life
Is that I would have to enjoy each of their souls
Knowing there would be heartbreak in the very end.
