1.
In early fall through Halloween, you took a series of photographs documenting the changing of leaves from living to last breath You could see the trees through the window of the hospital room where your mother was clinging to life The changes started slow, but came more quickly now as cancer climbed through her body like an overgrown garden When winter stormed in loud and ahead of schedule (like party guests arriving hours before planned), the last shots of color you’d hoped to capture fell a sudden and swift death That night, you woke to the sound of nurses and doctors rushing in to fight a battle they would not win this time It almost felt as if she had decided to let go when the leaves did You waited until the anniversary passed before you studied the photographs The last shots of leaves were burning a deep red as if they no longer feared death
2.
I wanted to sleep all day I was miserable and I knew it How I hated this job! My fucking terrible boss... It seemed like her only goal was to make us feel more miserable than her Nothing was ever good enough I was counting down hours before the day had ever begun Every single night when I got home I couldn't stop myself from complaining away so many precious, precious hours It was a vicious cycle that I could not break, so I stayed Knowing you need to change is easier than making changes (you can try to tell yourself that the reasons to stay are greater than the reasons are to go) But I know I am not a sunk cost I will not bend! I am better off without this Even if I don't know what comes next, I know I am worth more
3.
I am buried under covers and I feel so heavy (like my legs are a mountain range and I am anchored to the sheets) My dog is nestled in the folds of my legs and I don't know if he thinks it's him keeping me safe or me keeping him safe At 4 AM, these aren't new thoughts- "What am I supposed to do next?" "What if it's too late?" Outside, darkness still blankets the sky Everything is still It feels so fragile When dawn breaks, the world wakes up from dreaming and everything possible is impossible again In a few hours, you will wake too Brace yourself, steady your hands not ready to begin, go to work, no time to think come back home and repeat Everything's changed
4.
You could say there’s been quite a lot of change but not enough to make us see a difference Rearranged in the most aesthetically-appealing places In a space where it belongs But it’s all the same All the same to me Now I know I’ve been nostalgic since I started having memories But there’s nothing else to do I don’t get 100 times to make a first impression But I’ll try anyway Making sure we’re prepared as we possibly could be For the next time there’s a next time And that won’t be soon I just hope that today is the day I think it is But it’s all the same to me
5.
I painted it shut There were reasons I would not speak (for fear of saying them out loud would give bodies to old ghosts) Then, I avoided their footsteps They were haunting the hallways, loud and uneven marching like a parade of potential misspent- caterwauling like a lazy jazz quartet I could feel my decisions now they were shouting out loud! They were louder when I stopped, so I kept on moving For every step that I took they matched pace, one measure behind me All of the sudden, I realized I had not painted it shut I had painted myself into a corner I had given bodies to old ghosts, I had marked the parade route So I turned around and let them come, pulled their teeth out, one by one I gave them new names! I reclaimed myself! Fear is power when removed from your body
6.
I felt so alone, driving you back from your parents’ house, where you said you needed to find something I could not give you The countryside slept, so the silence between us seemed to grow like an unbearable weight or a little death that would grow out of control and swallow us both I wished the drive was further so the idea of you and me could survive a little bit longer, but your head was slumped up against the window until we got home
7.
Living Proof 02:45
Carefully taking the right medications Easily adjusting to the situation Listening to good advice but it’s not working Even when The blue light helps me feel less alone And we all will embrace this With consideration I’m giving away Too much information And we all will embrace it ‘Cause we all want the same thing And we don’t know that is But that’s okay with me Today will be different Today will be the same The same can be different In some weird kinda way we all will deserve it we all will deserve it we all will deserve it I’m living proof Of carrying through
