poetry by j matthew waters

otherwise you’d still be alive today

I thought I had something
but when I looked back
nothing was there

how do you keep yourself
when we all know
what happens in the end

the story can be anything
you want it to be
as long as you’re open
to interpretation

building confidence
is the hardest part
it takes time & patience
rare traits for brilliant minds

now trust is another matter

you never should have
told me your plan
otherwise you’d still
be alive today


may two thousand twenty-two
