Sisterobsession | A Poem

I think of you

outside of yourself

and wonder whether

you missed yourself in that

very moment

*

whether the thought arose

that it might have been a mistake

that it was too early to leave

too brutal to leave like that

weren’t you heartbroken?

*

Could you stomach the sight of

the way you ended

the pain we screamed into the valley

the daily punch in the gut

that your death caused?

*

I know you’re relieved

and free, disembodied, vast –

I can’t remain in the shadow of these things,

because as you jumped and felt nothing

I feel e v e r y t h i n g.
