in real life, people use umbrellas

Poetry By: Kathryn

annabelle, come out of your shell- me and you got a lot to do, you know it's true. so, annabelle, tell your ma and pa that arkansas is calling you.

promises are only forged in Black and White
but the Heart around my neck says they're Gray.
we turn our eyes away from these mistakes
and choose not to look over our shoulders
at the wreaking havoc we left behind.
we engage in Girl-Boy whispers
and Ignore that the people we've become
are who we said we'd never be.
i try to force Chemistry and forget love
while you move on to the next chapter.
in some ways, these stories we lived in were fairy tales,
but it's only in movies that we stand in the Rain.
in Real life, people use umbrellas.
