Not So Despicable, A Little More Me.

I put on the brakes as the week came to an end,
Easing into the driveway, rolling through the door.
My room was a mess,
So I started picking up where I had left off,
Breathing in before returning calls,
Replacing the things that gravity got the best of.
An empty bed won't echo like some places do,
But by the time you don't mind
And everything that must go is already gone,
You will have already given those cardboard memories away.
The house is boarded up and the quietness stays.
