7 Days


No answers
only the cancer
My fault, a typo
no cancer
Just not a happy ever after
a loner
Who does that describe
What is the real definition of
'losing everything'
Everything that usually never evaporates
How is it possible
in 7 days
7 days of fighting
7 days of putting everyone else ahead
7 days of falling behind
falling behind to the back of the line
causes an uneasy blend of memories
I feel so sick
like I've been poisoned so deep
and here I am dying a slow, painful death
No, no
these can't be memories
these aren't memories
There is no happiness, only a well
Something only a baby of my height can call a home
Resisting a look back several lines later
reaching into the black
wishing for more time
knowing that time is nothing more than lost
it was never a virtue
Possibly
What's the definition for feeling alone
alone in the concept of mind
hoping for something in exchange
Impossible
