[New Poem]: This Life

This life
by Yvette Hess

Dreams strung wall to wall.

Pills pop

And I swing

I dream of jumping,
I end falling
Failing
And bleeding

I bleed,
Ending it all.

Oh but it’s fast again

Words speed through

And I write

And I’m alive.

I can’t stop.

Living this,

Like this.

When every breath is a test.

I’m sorry

I’m so sorry

I am grateful.

It’s just stillness we (sometimes) miss.
