30/30

27/30

Inadequate.

The life that stayed
to compensate for the one lost.

Life punctuated with rending
of body and soul
body that has always been mine
but never felt like mine.

My own body treated like property
possession
plaything
to be broken and thrown away
in capricious moments.

It’s not intellect.
It’s feelings.
Intuition that tells me
the life that stayed
is not adequate
not a replacement
for the life lost.

But I’m the one that’s here.
