On Dignitas and New Shoes

A poem inspired by the film Me Before You

Alpine light filters through a gauzy curtain

A final pressing of lips to lips

Breath to breath

Our teardrops salty mingle

A sip of water

Seductive in its simplicity

But in truth the agony becomes yours

Instead of mine

It’s not as simple as new shoes

But I’ll walk in them today

By your side

Heels click-clacking

Arches aching hot

Beauty and pain like it’s always been

I won’t leave.

Death: is it your right to choose?
