Time

Last month

I tried to make time slow down.

So I could hold on

For just a second more.

But time only moved

Faster.

Two weeks ago

I tried to fly

With this knife

To help me float.

But I

Fell.

Three days ago

I tried to stop my heart.

So the pain would cease.

But the bullet

Missed.

Today

I lie in a bed.

And I think the sun

Shines a little

Brighter.
