But Not Today

by Everlasting   Sep 3, 2021


Death,
i see you in the corners of my life,
watching me
i see you slowing down your walks,
every time i fall
i see you afar the distance,
eavesdropping,
every time i cry secretly to my pillow

i see you, Death.

i see you in my deliriums,
i see you in my dreams
i see you in my pain
i see you when my breath seems to leave me
i see you when my heart decides to party,
when my cells become drummers throwing extra heart beats,
i see you near syncope
i see you

i see you getting closer

i see you

and all i want to do is hug you
