One Last Breath

tiles shifted

arranged in order

by direction

wipe the table

tossing each to the floor

they land, soul up

Heart exposed

the picture haunts me

truth revealed

it screams in my mind

there is no silence

to hush the din

it falls on my ears

though sweet, the words are sharp

my soul turns

trying to hide from revelation

but the absence of him

brings clarity, to a muddy mind

there in the tiles

arranged in order

brightly colored

a story told

of emotions bared

i step back

taking one last breath

for the Fallen

as i take my place among them


  1. Filled with you in a universe of emotion. Big hugs.

  2. I can't hide...Can't I? Sweet post. I'm at a lost for words... just takes my breath away. (touched)
