Smothering-Ryan Mutz


They smothered me with hugs,

Then they smothered me with lies.

She lies.

He lies.

 

I was smothered between kindness,

Then I was smothered between arguments.

She shouts.

He shouts.

 

I was smothered by hugs and kindness,

Now I’m smothered in silence.

She is gone.

He is gone.
