Broken Love & Broken Glass

flying down the highway
after a two-story jump
into waist-deep
Michigan snow

next stop
South Carolina
ex-mob boss
stepdad
safehouse

ignored warnings
by a neurotic
fake-tit
mother Mary

hindsight
is 20/20

star crossed lovers
set the scene
against a Myrtle Beach
work of art
sunset backdrop

a piece of coral
in place of a ring
somehow
we both knew
it could never
last

us
against the world
against us

by the simplest means
possible
all
for the sake
of broken love

until
that crazy bitch
put broken glass
in my boots

red hair
and rehab
should’ve been
my first two
red flags

but like I said
hindsight
is 20/20
