obligatory divorcing of time
Relayed sad story
two many years married lovers.
She terminally ill
and he struggling to bear the burden
of conjoined distress.
She could not have lived.
They say her frame
becoming more and more skeletal
as she bravely dragged it
through her life's final dregs.
An angel maybe he hopes
unable to witness her suffering anymore
might come down
take her to peace under his wing.
And what would he do then
the point of his minute by minute
praying for a miracle now made futile?
the sound of his heart broken sobbings
on an air turned immediately to
the unimportance of his reasons to live
so powerful their love of each other
so demanding of their inseparability
that it became awash
with suicidal influencings
insistence's of his need to go and find her
I have heard
a blade across the throat ended his sorrow
and I pray it had been with all speed
for his soul hurting sake
and hope that nothing but flesh and blood remained
to enter earth's mouth
his spirit separated then would be free
to set out on its quest
of seeking reunification
