Tears of Broken Death

I feel the pain The immense pressure in my chest Will she leave me Will she die I don’t think I can handle this The increased heartache For she is near death I hurt so much By the ears she listened So quietly she sleeps But deceivingly so She doesn’t breathe quite right At a loss for air I quiver with the pain of her dying She listens With each breath she takes I breathe but not of happiness I hurt all throughout I hate to worry The annoyances of being this way The terror of the inevitable Death will surely come slowly Taking each breath she has And throwing it out Past any hope Of recovery She has no air left in her To breathe And I cry… Tears of broken death

    brings back have described the feelings so well. It is tears of broken death we shed for those who suffer a lingering death.

    Russell; this is a wonderful poem that you have written. it is very hard to accept that a loved one is going to die. The hardest thing is - that you can't do nothing about it. I hope it is not true for you now. Take care and God bless you. Lucilla

    This brings a shiver down my spine Russell, I sure hope it is nothing more than a fictional piece, though it reads like someone who is being affected by death quiet vividly, your very special, I hope you know that, I will include you in my prayers today, either way, God loves you sweet man, chin up, keep writing, and as the weather improves, sit by a running stream and take of the essence of life, for it shall give you strength, my love to you and yours always, Your Devoted Rose, xxx

    Russell heartfelt, the last breath of death, emotions filled each line. I can relate to this poem. Watching my mother struggle for every breath with her lung disease. Warm Smiles, Connie

    I was seriously moved by your poem, Russell. I sure hope it's a work of fiction. You made it so alive I could feel your pain. For sure the best contest entry I've seen. Good luck, my friend :)
