lessons in hell

learning how to be alone was one lesson in it’s own selfish hell to teach oneself

learning to accept it as the new normal was an entirely different hell all together

it’s funny in the saddest sobbing laugh because it eases the ache way

hell is a decidedly human conceit
one dabbed behind the ears
reeking of sulphur
gentle reminders
not only
can it be worse
it most certainly

living is hell
it beats the alternative
