like a widow

pitiful what the mirror holds with glassy eyes, death now beholds tangled webs of skin's layered shawl, like a widow, night comes to crawl lies sticky sweet, hang bead to glass as memories of life soon pass death grabs the soul within the shawl, like a widow, night comes to crawl darkness drains the last bit of hope, dangles his prey on tiny rope then pulls the strings from tattered shawl, like a widow, night comes to crawl

    Sandra, the widow idea is original and compelling though I bet this was difficult to write. Still, you make the difficult look easy. On death and rebirth, see "Gibbous Moon," which I just posted.
