Afternoon Rum (A Reflection)

We were just kids, with too many emotions and a lack of coping skills.

No parenting magazine could have prepared mom and dad for this.

Nothing is enough, when all you want is everything.

Eating sky and ocean in a ravenous binge.

Falling into n o t h i n g n e s s, drowning in our sins.

We were just kids.
