other heartbeats

In chill dawn
I wake
With other lives still
Inside my skin
As I lay
Under sweat dampened sheets
I wonder
How many others
Wake like this
With other heartbeats
In their chests
And other memories
Fading from their brains
And the saddest part
Is that
If given the choice
I’d choose any one
Of those other lives
Over mine
