you know what my heart is like,
since i learned your impending fate.
it’s like an amusement park ride,
with every inch of altitude my heart rages hastier and hastier with grief.
like butterflies yet they're vile moths hollowing out my insides
its like my heart is stuck at the top of the hill dreading the plummet,
that looks a million miles long.
i don’t normally get very personal on here unless it’s super vague but i felt like this was the perfect prompt for what i’m going through at the moment. it’s about knowing that someone you love only has a short period of time left. if you are going through something similar just know that you are not alone and your feelings are valid. i’d love to hear anyone’s ideas on how i can improve this piece.
