self death

Iíve been pressed into lifeís pages
Dried like a freshly plucked spring flower
Sucked of my true color
Shriveling into oblivion a bit young

I figured the best option was not to -
hopelessly blow air back into my lungs
and hope I wake from this self death
- as something more resilient

Whatever was here is long gone
I searched around for it,
Reaching my hands down my throat
Like searching for spare change in a purse

But nothing is coming up
Except clear fluid and
the taste of my medications
Best to start over, whatís wasted is wasted
