Mortality

Life
A corset 
Suffocating 
But holding 
It all
In place
Shaping a 
Person
Forming the
Curves 
And angles

A reminder
An excuse 
To travel
To dream
To skydive
To scuba dive 
To dive
into love

A whisper 
That says
Keep your
Loved ones
Close
Creeping
Lurking
Always there

A presence
Silent
As a
Soothing breeze
But deafening
As a
Screaming train 
Charging angrily
Toward its
Destination

A seat belt
Restricting
Choking
But safe
One click
And freedom
