Bye

Bye

 

Blankets-dark

Cradle me.  

Singing

     me to sleep.

 

Emptiness bores

Into me.

Burrowing

      a tunnel with no walls.

 

Shadows-thick

Envelop me.

Weaving

    a world without me.

 

Death-creeping

Whispers me.

Gusting

     a sorrow-air.

 

Water-clear

Laps at me.

Flying

    a loss penetrating me.

 

Walls-dotted

Circle me.

Screeching

   sounds- on-blank for me.

 

 

An arrow of light

stabs through my heart.

Life

    for me to grasp.

 

Other bows are brandished

Hope

    for me to drink.

 

Eyes-closing

Save me.

Hiding

    me from

them.

Me
