The Thing About Life

A Poem from the Upcoming Poetry Book, 'Kiss Me or Kill Me,' by Amargeaux Rai

The Thing About Life

Life has a hell of a way

Of smacking you in the face

Doesn't it?

Everyone knows about that.

What they don't know

Is that life

Wasn't trying

Isn't trying

Will not try

To EVER hurt you.

It's just that

With you these days

Shaking wasn't enough

Tapping wasn't enough

Calling out your name wasn't enough

To wake you up out of your sleep

So it just had to slap you.

I know you don't like it,

But you were sleeping on the tracks.

And there's an oncoming train.
