How could it be?
It was as if waking from a dream.
Late in life,
and questioning her desire to be alive.
Burdened with another’s memories,
a slideshow of travesties.
Where was she to go
knowing what she didn’t know?
Given the years remaining
was a real life really worth gaining?
Just, damn it.
Let them say what whey would,
no one else understood.
