Fallen Angel

slidefunerals20

Sweet smile, familiar

A memory, distant

So fleeting like another

Lifetime

Perhaps two locked eyes,

Acknowledgement

Of existence,

 

Now the lack of

Existence

Stirs

Strange nausea.

 

Gone is

A relative term,

Yet gone

Never fails to make

Someone cry.

 

You are never

Gone

Completely,

Still the pain

Furrows deep into

Untouched territory.

 

The shattered glass

Cuts vulnerability

Until it bleeds,

But your skin

Will never bleed again.

Your youth is

Immortalized,

Your time is

Frozen

On the brink

Of an end, and

A beginning.

 

And your existence is now

Shared among

Those left behind,

Who cup it in their hands,

Gently,

Lovingly,

Never to let go.
