Two Steps From Sorrow

I’m two steps from sorrow
And I can never resist
Taking a step.

Like ex-boyfriends that promise to be back
Leaving you as they turn from the porch
Never to come again,
Sorrow hugs me
In all the right places
And leaves me with just enough air
To keep myself conscious.

It keeps me company when I’m lonely in the shadows
And sinks deep into my skin
To tinge me purple.
Two steps is all it takes
But the catch is,
It takes so much more
To leave.
