I tried to fake my death

Tied a rope to an ancient tree
And scattered remnants,
Little parts of me.

Pretended I was cold, asleep.
Nails still growing six
Feet deep.

Took my plunge and held my breath
But I didn’t cheat you.
Or Death.

You cut me down and dug me up,
Scooped me from the
Water’s cup.

Hung to dry my sodden soul,
Gave me back my
Body, whole.

Set me free in other ways.
Let me soar to my
End of days.

Let me soar,
To my end of days.
