The sound of metal colliding rings in my ears
And all I see is white.
The stretcher, the walls,
The bright light calling to me
As I scream for you.
Lying five feet away,
You’re so close
But these walls separating us
Keep me from whispering your name…
From trying to hold your once warm body
In my decaying arms.
I’ve lost all hope of being with you
As I lie here, waiting for an eternity to pass
Inside a plot under a headstone.
