Origin Story

Origin Story

6/2/20


By Jaiel Butterfly


Everyhero has an origin story

some event

Some happenstance

Some tragedy that transforms them

Into a force

That may one day save the world

But I was not the hero of my story

My hero breathes no more


All I have loved

All I have known

All I have been

Stopped with his heartbeat



And I wish

I could feel his arms around me

And I wish

he would snore in my ear

And I wish

he were playing video games

while I try to sleep

And I wish

I could hear him complain

about me playing my music

too

loud

And I wish

I could hold his hand

And sit by the waterfall

And dream about the future together



But I laid in bed last night

Frozen in the spot he always sat

And did not know how I would survive without him

And as I stared into silence

The light of sunrise filled the window

And I did not know

the fate of the day to come

So I lit another candle to my love

And began to pray

But

I COULD NOT BREATHE



WHY?!

I asked God

Have you caused me so much sorrow

And in the stillness

I heard my love whisper


Your pain will heal others

Your voice will soothe others

Your tears will let them know

They are not alone in their sorrow.

THIS IS YOUR ORIGIN STORY.
