Life Borrowed – Random Twitter Poem for Jan 11th

Life Borrowed is a sad poem that tells the story of a man remembering his love who lost her life to due illness. I must admit that I made myself sad while writing this one, it probably was partially inspired by The Notebook but only loosely. The poem included 13 random submissions (in blue) provided by the following Twitter players:
@Mikkel_Juhl (everything, but love is just borrowed), @theo_grey_era (orange), @costa_jl (glabrous), @Giuliettaspeaks (supercalifragilisticexpialidocious), @ashley_festa (Red), @alisondrake (Perseverance), @lavenderuses (reality), @starsandsky378 (Buffalo), @Architekt010 (spectacular), @newyorkbigapple (tweet), @BasicBlogTips (inheritance), @ptaylor98 (resilient), @selurus (optimum)

Life Borrowed

Remembering that everything, but love is just borrowed
her arms around mine such a spectacular reality
resilient heart beating like a buffalo stampede
supercalifragilisticexpialidocious moments

Then the red sickness came sweeping down one day
unlucky inheritance curse to tear us apart
perseverance of hope dwindling over time
as no optimum treatments were ever found

A glabrous angel who passed an evening too soon
remembering the fading light of an orange sunset
my cries soft, no more audible than a bird tweet
life itself is just borrowed, only love remains
