second time around

you’re killing yourself.
all i can do is stand back and watch
damage being done
i already did my time
standing at the edge of the hospital bed
tubes fusing in and out
blood slowly flowing through
your limp body
“he won’t make it” -doc says

i began to feel my heart failing as i stood near yours
you promised me it wouldn’t be like this again
i’m too young to carry this much pain
and you’re not old enough to die
