Life is what happens to you

Life is

When you lie on the bed
and imagine yourself away,
out of boundaries,
on a highway,
chasing cars,
and a sunset
over the red hill.

Life is what happens to you
when first time
your heart is torn
from your soul,
and you think
you are dying,
and the world
is an empty place.

Then you replace your
heart with poetry.
Suddenly there are words,
suddenly you are not alone,
you are chasing
setting suns,  
and rising moons, 
and calling them metaphors.
