Dream squashers

It comes on like a

Late summer thunderstorm

Making your house shake

Making your bones cold

Letting your heart break

Letting your shoulders sink

As you shatter like hard rain

On concrete

But no one notices

Because you keep it inside

Pressing the shirts

Pinching the pies

Drudging through

Gritting your teeth

Letting your heart break

Letting your shoulders sink

Not letting them help

Not letting them in

Make them dig and dig

To get to any part of it

To get to any part of the hurt

That’s buried inside You

regardless of relation

And the haunting truth

Of letting your heart break

Letting your shoulders sink

Before you can prevent it

Before you thought it was happening

At all
