When The Bough Breaks
by Genuine Suede 10/07/2009 / Relationships
""When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall...""
That old melody is stuck in my head.
Over and over again I sing the tune softly,
barely mouthing the words.
I feel like I'm up there in that cradle.
I can feel the bough breaking,
caving under the weight,
one screaming fiber at a time.
There's no one to catch me.
Everything's going down
cradle and all
and I'm filled with fear wondering. . .
will I survive?
