Joie De Vivre

would it matter if I cried?

what if …

I walk to the end of the line

stare the truth down

come head to head with they

who are supposed to be –

only me –

shake myself awake

afraid, not afraid

what if I choose to live

where I should have just died

what if you lied

closed my eyes shut

and whispered in my mouth

give it another try.
