Loss

Pain leaving time bereft of its momentum 
Every nerve crying out despair 
Mind locked in denial of this moment 
Desperately seeking out care 
Knee's buckling and breathing inadequate
Absence slowly pulverizing the future 
Time locking in place; unwavering 
As truth pours down leaving fracture 
Blood pumping as your stomach butterflies 
Life's framing rot beneath your feet 
Pain filling your eyes to wailing 
Clutch tightly your chest as you weep 

If in this moment you have stillness 
If for a millisecond you have peace 
Life still calls out encouragement 
Endure. time will turn anew and pain cease
