Most days I can’t tell If I’m the chaos

Or if the chaos is what’s stifling me

Either way, life and I are out of sync

A mutual dissatisfaction of the other

It’s hard to live in each other’s spaces  

And abhor any means of comingling

I’ve seen enemies with greater respect       

So goes the battle between life and death      

It’s not easy to empathize with disaster

If disaster steals my entire familyships      

Life has become an unwanted roommate

Clinging to me like some extra shadow         

Raw bitterness is all I taste these days

I miss the sweetness…of my yesterday’s
