Ridiculously self- pressured, hopelessly (and unsuccessfully) in love for three years, and scared to write the things that matter. And that’s me on a good day . Good luck.

A Plea to Death

May 3, 2021

PROMPT: Sijo

I want to stop writing about death. 
But it follows me: it takes my heart, my loved ones, my mind. 
I cannot escape this prison of mortality. I can’t unsee my past.

    I really like this, the idea that death can be consuming before it happens because it invades our fears and grief about our loved ones.
