Not again

by Devina

My heart didn’t fly
Up my constricted throat
When I saw you fall off that cliff,
It sputtered and stuttered
As jagged as the rocky face terrain
Forget what I said
Forgive and forget, let’s,
I finally blinked as mine eyes
Spied your parachute exhale into life
Breath entered me once more
My blood began to crawl in my veins
As this lump in my chest got with the program
Never again, so help me, I swear
Find a new goddamned hobby
Go ahead, call me a cranky bear
I dare.
