Dying Hurts


Aged Darling
Sits at the edge
Of the glass doors,
Exhales a sigh
Traces words
Into the fog
Her breath creates
On the glass.

Outside
Is the tempting air.
Producing fragile lust
That breaks apart
The minute
Passion becomes a chore.

The words fade
Like dying apparitions.

Vanishing
Into a speck
Of white fog.

No larger,
Than the circumference
Of a rose's stem.

The outside air is begging her
Not to go towards the speck.

“Avoid the light! ”
It screams.

As drool,
Absorbs into the carpet,
She closes her eyes
To the fog.

What dies
Are nothing but words.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
