living contradictions

living contradictions

slow seasons turning
they mark off my extra days –
how am I still here?
if to wake up is a lie,
can I not one day refuse?

excerpt from Songs Without End

“You know, I was supposed to die when I was your age.

For some reason I’ve had two extra years… it’s strange.

I should not be alive.”

– Ryū
