extinguished

They pull up their chairs to the table

She stares at the food on her plate

At the toast and the butter

Her father, her mother, she pushes away

 

And they rise in the morning

And they sleep in the dark

And even though nobody's looking

She's falling apart

 

She gets home from school too early

And closes the door to her room

 

There's nothing inside her

 

She's weak and she's tired of feeling like this
