last night she was dead.


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.

One thought on “last night she was dead.
