I can’t do this right now: A Haiku

Once again, my day

became a cacophony

of the screams of children with inner demons

and of the fight to calm them to safety;

Once again, I walked that tightrope

between calm and chaos,

expecting it to break at anytime

but instead seeing it sag and bend towards oblivion;

All I needed was a kind word,

an understanding ear,

some sort of empathy;

that was too much to ask I guess-

so I sat down to write this out

hoping to connect with someone-anyone,

some sort of passion,

or maybe even a friendly word;

but, instead, silent and withdrawn

you sit and read and drown me out with ocean waves.

I can’t do this right now…..
