If I Was an Empty Shell…

If I was an empty shell

lone at sea

would the Black swans

hear my wail

bend their fine wings

to dip

along

the waves

to come searching for me?

Would the

Moon

force the sea apart

and brighten its

dim light

to scour

the currents

in search of me?

I think not.

The Black swans are flying home.

The Moon

is hidden

by night clouds.

And it seems

no one

is Awake

besides me

in

the deep dark

Sea.

She felt Death’s shadow…

She felt

Death’s

shadow

halt

the pulse of her heart,

with one light touch.

All her life,

she was taught

Death was forceful

and hard.

But as she left Life

with Death,

she realized

how soft and warm

Death is.
