Life and Death

They talk to me every day
and I talk back
often with my middle finger raised.

Life
throws things at me
Depression
Bipolar
Panic
Addictions
saying
"I dare you.
You can't beat these."

and I say
"Bring it. I will fight
every one of them."

Death
beckons to me every day
whispering in my ear
breathing down my neck
saying
"Come with me
and the pain will end."

and I say
"Leave it. I will fight
for every inch of my life."

Life
throws me one hell of a curveball
straight at my head
a new trick it's never tried before
saying
"Dodge this."

I catch it one-handed
and turn to Life and Death.
I smirk
and I say

"Let's dance."
I'm using "Let's dance" in the context of fighting - i.e., someone wants to fight you, and you smirk and say "Let's dance."

You're not supposed to catch a curveball, you're supposed to swing at it and put it in the left field bleachers!
...
But I get what you mean. I love this piece :)
