Love is Lonely

Why is life short?

Why is life short?

I am scared unable to speak, unable to move.
I am held captive alone in darkness for an unknown part of time.
I am no longer in control. Was I ever?
Life can be so short, or so long,
and time can be wasted from the mistakes we had made.
But is that the reason why life is so short?
No life is short because you make it short
