dear, dear a.s.

the air was thick
moisture-laden cornsilk
the dead of night
having come alive
seething like snakes
 jaundiced fingers
strangling life.

from hearts and minds
words live
as you intended
making this yet again
a failed suicide attempt.

A.S:  Surely the words will continue, for that's what's left that's true .
