atemberaubend | a poem

I understand how you died

what happened to your body

to your feet

to your face

your bones

I understand

*

why you died

is related to how you died

you died because you killed yourself

you died because

for a moment in time

every single part of you

wanted to die

and that was enough

today I’ll live

today I’ll die

today I’ll go to work

today I won’t
