The Poem Outlives the Poet

It all came to this

you reading me

what? you don’t believe in destiny?

you don’t if you don’t think you aren’t meant to be here

no matter how much you wish you were somewhere else

me too

though I wrote this years ago

and still here I am

telling you

there’s no escape from Fate

if there was

you could call checkmate

and write off all I’ve written

yet we’re both still here

(thank you)


I died three years ago

and still we are still here

and you don’t believe in reincarnation?

that’s cool

but maybe you wanna reconsider

how we both ended up here

when one of us is dead

and neither of us know what’s ahead.
