It was once said that a cat can live 9 lives

But a person could live a thousand more


Nothing compared to 

The glamor, the effervescence, the costumes;

A wish they hoped would come true:

To run away from their world of gloom


They once were teens in love on ship, slowly sinking

Or a man who defied gravity on the walls of every city

Or a fish who learned to “just keep swimming”

Or a man who learned life was like a box of chocolates, so witty


Yet here the person lay

Heart stolen by the moving pictures the box displayed

A Thousand and Nine Lives
