Harder to Kill

Wrote this earlier this month…and forgot to post. So it goes.


For so long

my fear

was losing you.

And then,

I lost you.

And the Earth

didn’t stop spinning.

And the sun

didn’t implode.

For so long

my fear

was disappointing them.

And then,

I disappointed them.

And my heart

didn’t stop beating.

And my veins

didn’t collapse.

So maybe

the world is more resilient

than we would like

to believe.

And maybe,

we’re harder to kill

than we know.
