Maybe Ever After

once more
(with feeling)
let us complicate things
strangle ourselves with good intentions
make the same mistakes over and over
like a good song stuck on repeat
the shine wearing off little by little
until the noise becomes grating
but still something that was once fondly regarded

once more
(with feeling)
let us dive in headfirst, thirty-first
and thirtieth
ten years later
eyes hands lips voice body brain soul
to my surprise I'm still here
died and rose again
"you don't have to die any more."
