Finally Free

Smooth as a whisper
Light as a feather
What once kissed
Caressed
Her lungs
Fled
Never more
To whisper
Their sweetest song.

Once strong
Firm
Constant beat
In wrist
In neck
In thumb
In thigh
Like an ancestral drum
Bringing rhythm
And rhyme
Fell silent
As darkness fell.

Last
But not least
Sparks
And currents
Lighting pathways
Imagination
Opening
And closing
Doorways
Grew slowly cold
Encrusted in fog
Slipping away
Out of reach
Existence forgotten.

Released
Disconnected
Ethereal
Gone forever
From torment
Anguish
And
Loneliness.

Finally free.
