Impasse

I don’t understand
why life must end

I mean
my mind can crunch
the number theories bunch
enough to say
okay
that would be bad
but my will is strong
and my heart fights
to keep all the lights
on

Then when endings hit
too close to home
I scream
don’t leave me
behind
not this time
Nevertheless
I’m not ready to go
just yet
I fret
life is too precious
I must cling to every breath

still
there’s a fly on my desk
and I am left
bereft of any answers
except

I miss her…
