Death and birth.

by Ted L Glines

stomach churning
skin  burning
toilet haste
vomit taste
life dissembling
weakly  trembling
blind -- groping
long past hoping
final yelp
no  one to  help
clear to grey
time to pray
grey to black
no  way back
black  to white
spirit bright
no breath no groan
still  -- flesh --  bone
peace -- dead alone
~~~ ethereal time ~~~
eternal  blurring
something stirring
life assembling
weakly trembling
blind  -- groping
dreaming -- hoping
clear to grey
time to prey
grey  to  black
no going back
black to white
lights -- bright
scream  --  moan
moving -- flesh -- bone
pain -- borne  alone

Author's Notes: Yes,  "prey" is intentional, for  every newborn thing is, by necessity,  predatory in nature. Sweet cuddly things.  We are happy they are  not born with fully functional teeth and claws (shades of  Stephen  King) .

No Posts? Let me hope you deleted them. Very nice. Life to Death to Life. You make it sound believable. Thanks Dennis
