I am getting this one in at the very last second. I know I promised to get this story out sooner, but it just didnt happen. Oh well.. Maybe next week?
Yeah, I know.. empty promises.. it’s a learning process, I suppose.
I’ve done this weeks installment in the form of a poem.. I suck majorly at poetry, and that’s why you’ll see the most basic rhyme scheme ever.. not a proud effort, but I’m branching out of my comfort zone to try something new… gimme a break..
As always, leave comments.. I’d love to hear anything and everything you guys and gals have to say.
His body begins to Quake.
Reaching into the dark for something he knows he won’t Find,
His words, spoken in her voice, echo throughout his Mind.
Fingers caressing where her head should Lay,
A solemn comfort to keep the terror Away.
Flooded by the Memory,
Of his family of Three.
A pain so deep, his mind couldn’t Take,
Ripping away from his essence, his soul begins to Ache.
A family of three, is now only Two,
A man once fulfilled, is broken, Too.
Her struggle in a war of Attrition,
Against a cancerous Condition,
Left her frail and Lean,
With no cure She could Receive.
Never could the Pain,
Rise to a place where it could Gain,
The words, “I Resign.”
As she fought for her remaining Time.
The wheels of Fate,
In Him did Make,
An unending Hate,
For the Love it would Take.
And by Her side, He never did Leave,
Until there was nothing left to do, but Breathe.
Alone in the Dark,
With only Her pillow left as His Mark,
His last whisper into Her Ear,
Now resounds in Her voice, as the only thing He Hears…
“I have always loved you…. I will always love you.”
