the Erinyes wept


today I will do nothing.
I will look at the ladder but not climb it.
I will dip potato chips into honey, only because it's stupid.
I will not think of my favourite things because I will start thinking of you.
I will not sing, dance or cook.
I will drink the ginger ale my mother left behind,
a mother I might or might not see again.
I will not fall in love with a beach volley player
no matter how pretty, sensitive or sexy she is.
when I read the book of my life today will be an empty page.
neither happy nor sad
just empty.
