Something Bad Happened Today

Something bad happened today. Emotions destroyed like hurricanes Words drowned and created tears Ears heard and hands covered them To rid some of these horrid pains Drunken breaths were slurring words Cries took place in the bathroom Souls didn't want to let go Instinctively I flew with the birds Because... Something bad happened today A mother's love was lessened Broken hearts had numbed a family Minds no longer burst with energy Something in hearts was embedded Untouchable eyes saw Touchable breast Careers were at risk Innocence committed suicide It was not feasible to rest Memories were made to taunt Brains held too much Oxygen no longer produced breaths Eyes closed producing visions that haunt Stomachs sank Fear not once trembled Things were unbelievable Mouths drank Something bad happened today
