Itai Oscar


If Its Dead


She dragged her heavy feet,
As she slowly walked into the
Hospital ward
It felt like she was carrying the Entire world on her shoulders

She threw her body on the stool
Next to the bed
Stretched her arms and took hold
Of the relationship on the death bed

She looked intently at the piece
Of meat on the death bed
And couldn't believe that her
Relationship with her friend was dying
The relationship that was so
Healthy was now as dry as biltong

A couple minutes later
The relationship took its last breath
She took in a deep breath and exhaled
Kissed it on the forehead
Looked at the dead relationship
For the last time and walked out

The relationship with her friend
Was dead and there was nothing
She could do about it.

If it's dead, let it die
Why feed something that is dead?
Why waste energy on something
That is dead?
You cannot hang out with a corpse
If it's dead, let it die!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
