Life and death

it's such a fine line.

we live here

but know that death hides, lurking in the dark recesses of our mind.

i've been there.

it wasn't pretty. not life-affirming but a questioning of everything i held dear.

one day

i won't  be here

as possible.

as to what is.

death. keep it close to you.

it will be coming for you one
