near death

September 14, 2019

someone I dearly love nearly died in a car accident yesterday.

she’s alright—i found out when she called me while i was walking home.

i had been annoyed and a bit frustrated from my train ride home—packed, stuffy, hot, and uncomfortable.

i was happy to be off that train— and she was happy to be alive.

that train ride wasn’t so bad, after all.
