if i could go back
rewrite my life
where would i start,
how would i end?

how would i fall in love?
would i leave out all the pain?
would the cast remain the same?

where’s the climax?
how will i keep my readers
reading page after page?

life is life
 is interesting
(without the editing
all the ugly filler
all the aimless wander)
  is it really?

beautifully ugly
pointless meanings
tragic comedic romantic
fictional non-fiction

broken pieces
holding hidden shapes
fit together how we see it
however we read into it

i will laugh when i cry
i will cry all the time
keep on reading
will it get better
or is this all there is?

placing expectation strategically
knock it over in checkmate
against the hand of fate
then shake in a game well played
