You are currently viewing To Live is to Suffer
i’m a donor yet still i live -
lungs so far apart
each breath stolen
could still 
kill me

i’m a coward yet still i thief -
chase me on the street
every time i dance 
my toes keep
breaking beneath me

i’m a liar yet still i speak -
clench me in your fist
cut my tongue out
break open my skin
shove it back in
"mount hanna be him"?

-Writing on Waves

A darker poem. Do you think you can avoid consequences of your actions?
