Preparation – Written Wednesday 13th May 2020 (Aged 45)

Preparation

sadness happens in life
you know that
but when you know it is coming
how do you prepare for the impact
everything,
can feel so personal
and so tied to who you are
even though external factors
go wide and far
when i said,
‘that ship has sailed’
i meant it,
i had not dreamt it
i cannot exempt it
i know what is coming
and already,
i am trying to imagine how it will feel
i imagine, in my softer delusions
hoping it is not real
but eventually, i know,
i will will have get up and pay this bill
finally,
reality will find me and move in for the kill
