The darkness The gaps In between sighs The breath In, out In, out Life turns side Love, life, death Push your body to The brim And you clutch L…I…F…E…? D…E…A…T…H…? V…O…I…D…? With both hands… A breath escapes And melts into her soul And you feel Severed following The birth pangs The umbilical cord Is still there Waiting to be cut!
