What do you think?




INEXPLICABLE

 

It's probably nothing
But every so often
I feel as though I'm dying.

Then I think to myself
'No-one knows what dying's like
So how would you know?'

A fair question, I accept,
But somewhere deep down
I think we all know.

In that moment, so
Infinitesimal,
So inescapable.

It will be like
"Oh no, not again!"

There are so many ways of dying. It's hard to know how you may feel. A lot of people die in their sleep. Does a dream tell them they're headed off? People dying of injuries probably realize that the jig is up (and may be thankful that it is). I was on my motorcycle once, going 130, when a woman going maybe 70 suddenly pulled in front of me. I slammed on the brakes. My front tire was skidding, and I was what seemed like inches away from the back of her car. Do you know what I thought? "Uh oh; I guess that I'm going to die.". It turned out that I didn't.
