Short reflection on death

Insistent dragging force mocking the weakened grip it sires

That with power draws power, sucks and dries, wears down

Closes the show with a void, when an ovation is craved

Midwifes the vast something into a strange nothing

Why do we shrink? Siloed by shared reality

(The binary truth of an entrance and an exit)

Which child-like glitch reveres what’s next over what has been?

(Cannot accept forever dwells in tales)

Death thieves our self, chipping at our why and how

Taunts our fading with the finger, chomps an early bite from hope

But out there’s not where we live; it’s in each other

Our final breath finds perfect resolution in each heart
