BEDSIDE – A POEM

Uncategorized, Writing

You crumpled at your last breath,

Silent, a coward that

hid behind the stillness of your face,

You morphed in those final hours,

Shifted form by the bedside

as you slipped away,

A child, feral, wild turned to

a woman, full of grace,

Swept a stillness not quite like the breeze,

But a stagnant pool of quiet unease

that drowned you in its wake;

I tried to reach you, in those depths,

You went beyond my fingertips

as my lungs were void of air,

I returned to surface,

Swam to shores of dark despair,

Echoes of your silent breath,

I hear them everywhere.
