Stillborn

i am no longer alive as i was in you.
there i was closer to you;
there i was in you.
i was close to your heart, once:
no more. you have birthed me,
giving me to the cold world.
but i cannot survive: apart from you,
i die. you had thought
to send me from you, alive.
but what you thought was birth
was death.
