Makarelle

Untitled

by Kelsie Beveridge

 

Under the covers all seems safe

No fighting or yelling

Relaxing into madness

All will be over soon

Visible strain on the family

Everyone’s hurt by a death

Living is hard

Life seems worthless

In this dark, long lockdown

Nervousness takes over

Goodbye forever
