Life (Unraveled)

I unravel life
Petal by petal
And each petal
Wraps around my neck
Like a scream

How can you escape it?
How can you smile?
How can you sing it
When all it asks for
Is to be spat out?

I came here to praise Life
Not to bury it
Yet here I am
On my knees again
Weeping at the graveside

Choke on it
For I would never swallow it
And yet I shall die trying...
