"So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be."


the sirens atop the ambulance
collide with my racing heart.
"will she survive?"
"can she see another day?"
speak panicking voices.

a blur of cloaked bodies
run to and fro beside me.
each time one passes,
I feel another breath
slip past my cold lips.

"get me the defibrillator!"
"what's happening?"
shock after shock-
nothing.
the green line stops spiking
and goes flat forever.

"I knew her heart would be the death of her"
was the last thing I heard
before I went into a state
of permanent, peaceful slumber.
