Waiting

I stop somewhere waiting for you
Stop caring, stop hoping it is us you will choose

A broken bottle
The alcohol drained
Shattered glass
From a picture frame
A photo of a crumbling family
Their lives will never be the same

Never be the same
Never again be fully happy
He took away their security
Replaced it with vulnerability

And now as you are
Improving
And it is us you are finally
Choosing
That vulnerability
Now instability
As it is certain to end
However soon
I am unsure
