Drop!

Drop,

By drop,

Hear it.

Drop,

By drop,

Taste it.

Heartbeat,

Once so solid, so….there,

Now feels elusive, temporary…fragile.

Water through a sieve,

Impurities filtered,

Pureness of the fragile heart,

Each drop, each beat,

A reminder,

Of a life,

That’s failing.

Blood,

In my veins,

Crimson reminder,

Of a life,

That’s failing,

Why can’t I wake ?

Why can’t I wake ?

Why can’t I wake ?

The echoing cry of the drowning man!.

Heart beats on,

And on,

The only part of me,

Still strong.

But slower,

And slower,

Blood, once so free,

Once so fluid,

Now slows.

I am drowning,

I am not awake,

Drop,

By drop,

Drop,

By drop.
