...You're still expecting me to write a summary?

I worry a lot, you should know that by now,
I don't know why, or know exactly how,
All I know is that when I'm alone,
I think about whether my mum's gonna phone,
If my brother's coming back, if dad's coming 'round,
Because in the silence, the house still makes sounds.

The sound of a glass breaking onto the floor,
The sound of my sister, screaming "No more",
The sound of the curse words, flying from mouths,
The sound of my head, asking me "How?",
The sound of soft crying from behind the chair,
The memory of hugs and hiding back there.

I guess what I'm saying, through all this angst,
Is that you've been supportive, and you have my thanks,
But, as I've said, I worry too much,
That someday you'll be gone and I'll loose my luck,
So, what I mean, behind all this rot,
Look after yourselves, because I love you a lot.

Labby: I know it's sappy and looks like a twelve year old wrote it, but it's true. I don't want to loose anyone in my life, and you all mean so much to me that I can't stand the thought of loosing you guys either. So...look after yourselves. For me.
