Fatalism

Once I thought it romantic to be resigned to death.

Now I am dead to my own resignation.

***

Once I thought it romantic to be resigned to death.

Now I fear romantic resignation will be the death of me.

***

Once I thought it romantic to be resigned to death.

Now I am resigned to the death of romance.

***

Once I thought it romantic to be resigned to death.

Now I romance death with resignation.

Now pursuit of life makes me happy
