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. 


a soul unraveled

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

I say Live, LIve because of the sun, the dream, the excitable gift" ... from Sexton's ending poem for her book Live or Die. 

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

Very well done on a sad subject matter, suicide is very hard to comprehend and even harder if successful to find closure. ~Z~
