dark: a limerick.

girl at grave.

On dark days I stand in tears by your stone
Struggling to breathe, unwilling to go home
My life is now one of agony
Even if you never loved me
Now I’m destined to walk this world alone

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
