last night she faked a seizure
last night they took her to the coldest ER room in existence
last night she confided in her doctor that it was all in pretense
last night she prayed for salvation
because last night,
was the very last straw.
you see, she’s hanging by a thread
so thin you can almost breathe it loose
so last night she gambled her life away
and last night she played dead
only to remind the living
to appreciate her and maintain her little thread of life.
last night she deceived
at dinner, in public, she played the role of her life.
a dying woman fighting for the one that barely lives.
