Split In Half

In the speechlessness of your breathlessness, I breathe vigorously to arouse your former arising, too afraid to touch a corpse in the making. Could another's spare years restore your time? Could another's breath bring back your air? Could my hyperventilation, like our blended heart, be split in half to share?

Juliet, I like the title and your poem called 'Split In Half'. A very thought provoking write for the end of another year. Truly felt that way..,could I spare a few years to have them back? Or was it I that was spared, in life. Oh that we could breath for them all, and have them back. Well done. -Richard

Thanks for your support, Sandra. This time of year death and loss seem forefront, but I've got some happy poems in the works.
