We’re the crossover episode
Nobody ever asked for.
Watched, but wished away.
Like our parents did back in the day.
“Go away, little one, go away.”
It shouldn’t still hurt so much.
But the pain is my constant companion.
And I need one, no matter what.
I can’t make it alone.

The road ahead is unknown to all,
But incredible hardship will be waiting.
Waiting and welcoming
Until you discover it is not.
Then it’s too late
And all you’ve got left is the pain.
