Blessed silence broken by blessed love

Posted to Poetry

Just as your soul is about to escape its lifeless chamber
Another life bursts into the room
They try to breathe the gift of life past your blood-stained lips
Shouting the entire time at a faceless being----- Death
Why do you come to take my friend?
Is your company lacking?
Do you need other lost soul to join your side?
You cannot take them
They are all I have
I am lost without them life will cease to exist
They are all I have
I hear the ambulance screaming outside
Death, let me take their place by your side
Let my friend stay alive

Never forget what can bring more joy to your life, beside a common kitchen knife.
