//Closure

Once again, I crave an audience with my gone self.Once again, I reckon.For closure is just a word, spit on my streets by fugitives of the heart.Brimming with charm, and squalid souls.Once again, I’ll return to bed.Like a fallen soldier in the battlefield, but all he has the world to show is a bruised ego…
