Second Chances

You should have killed me when you had the chance.

You should have snuffed out whatever it is that powers this infernal meat suit forward.

You didn’t though.

You balked at the opportunity

Trapped by some borrowed approximation of a conscience.

You didn’t kill me and I didn’t die

See

This is me not dying, all day every day

One day though my not dying and your probably not dying are bound to overlap

You should have killed me when you had the chance

Because

On the day when my not dying meets your not dying

Yours will not be the second chance

Not killing me, killed yourself
