Shhh

Unspeakable
When it happens
A twist of the ring
So to speak, yet not
Out loud to be spoken

Death, in final majesty
Of pulse, breath and life
Stops deeply – - exhales
For the last time, this time
This time, this time, this ...

Time ran out the back door
And so it goes until gone, you
Leaving with all proper farewell
Hearts bleeding tourniquet words
Vanquished amongst the forgiven

Morphine
