someone’s other life

I remember

too deep

in the depths of unwell

struggling to live

get better each day

letting go

of everything

but the next breath

the next

& falling asleep

to wake up

not knowing where I was

the year the day

or how I felt

without the sickness

& everything I’d written

was someone’s other life

pictures in a magazine

half-forgotten movie

just hanging on in hope

all of this would pass

& my own life would return again
