    the theory of cause and effect is flawed,
    we expect the outcome to mirror the struggle, that's wrong.

    there is no resting place
    in the shadows of my youth,
    saturated with pale memories
    like the fading colours
    of vintage photo-albums

    but my family saw the world
    in black and white,
    rainbows never following rain
    and household secrets
    never coming to light
    until I was too old for the truth to matter,
    for love to find a home
    in the bedroom or at the kitchen table.
    the line dividing right and wrong,
    so strong, I still have outlines on my back.

    I do not know why we are meant
    to inherit our parents' mistakes,
    as though the door to the family home
    never opened for visitors.

    oblivion hung from her throat
    like blood diamonds
    disguised in obsidian.

    the midnight sunsets
    had stretched so far across her forehead
    they'd begun to warp at each end of her hairline
    and draped down like a lace veil
    that had been recycled through one too many weddings
    that ended
    in the sunlight.

    the days had grown so long
    they outlived her shadow
    - she sat as the world came undone
    with every minute or her failures
    exposed
    in the light of the sun.

    she was the Lightbearer
    midnight soaked

    with the hope
    that there's no place like
    forever

    until she met Alaska in the summer.
