Peace (poem)

Seeing her lying there

Clean white sheets

Penned in by bars

So small and helpless

I can almost pretend

She’s just napping

Like when she was new.

She needed me then

She needs me now

To be her strength, her mercy

To sever the cord

That connects her to me

Like when she was new.

I sit beside her and stroke her hair

Guiding her to sleep

Like when she was new

Only this time the tears are mine.

I brought her into this world

Knowing someday I’d leave her

But I wasn’t expecting this.

I think the only way I can live

Is to be grateful

That she is not in my position,

Will never be in my position.

I am there for her always

Like when she was new.

I wuvs the horror movies and like to write snarky reviews about them. I also included some pretentious as hell microfiction (don't worry, it's at the bottom).
