Experiencing Death – September 1, 2019

I’d rather it be me, than you,

You ask why.

Because I know what’s on the other end.

An intensity,

A tightness

That won’t let go.

It grips you,

And holds you hostage

Silent to its prey.

I’d rather it be me, than you.

But wait,

Then it’d be you.

      1. It reminded me of something I wrote back in March…

        Who Goes First?

        It’s better that I’m living without you
        Rather than you living without me
        You’d never cope with this pain
        It has wrecked me
        But it would have destroyed you
        And I would have hated that

        Sounds like I’m not the only one who knows… 🖤

      2. Wow, to be the one who holds the burden of strength can be a blessing and a curse at the same time. But I have learned it’s ok, and that there is a strength in my weakness as well. It’s a narrow rope we all walk, but so worth it.

        Thank you so much for sharing your heart with me, those words hit hard and sharp.
