half girl
not much a woman
forced into experience
wishing a redo button into existance
half alive
not much more than dead
clinging for life
cheating Death with
wits and half promises
tempting Death with
crisscrossing scarlet lines
sign on the crimson line
of your own make
your grace period is almost up
a tragedy spanning almost 20 years
to be summed up simply as:
Death came, naturally,
to collect on property
long past due.
