Twisted music, a short story
A short story
"Get out of that car NOW!" Jackie's mom yelled from the house. Jackie rolled her eyes and opened the door. She didn't want to get out of the car, to walk into that new house with that unbearable, shrill, control-freak of a woman that happened to be her mother. She didn't need to be ordered around like a two-year-old, for God's sake she was almost 16!
# "Jackie! Inside NOW!" her mother shrieked, "I mean it!" Ignoring her mom she sat in the car, and her only thoughts were that dad never would have made her move if she didn't want to, and how much she missed him. Tears filled her eyes at the thought of her dad and the accident that tore him from her.
Jackie shook her head, she was done with the tears. It was time to accept he was gone, even though it left an aching hole in her heart. Taking a deep breath she slowly got out of the car and walked into her new house, her new life.

To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
