I Haven’t The Strength To Write Fully

My mother and father 

sit opposite me

talking about

how

although they’re downright miserable 

they still have to be happy

my mothers face looks

as though it’s melting

all hope

all dreams

sticking like candle wax at the bottom of her mind 

the fire within them has long burnt out 

I can only hope the same doesn’t happen for me
