What’s The Matter?; a poem

What’s the matter?

Did I not live tragically enough for you?

Did I let too many things be the gleam in my eye?

Did I let too many people love this heart of mine?

Should I have fallen in love with the brokenness?

Because I could have.

And I would have

Had I not seen some miracle thing.

Had I forgotten that I left my heart in someone else’s  sleeve somewhere,

Had I forgotten that I didn’t leave this will in my mother’s womb.

Had I thought that my fate was my sealed shut; that I was bound to be an ancestors broken record, left to play.
