Destiny's Child - Poem by SHARON DEICHERT

I tried to talk to her,
But my lips refused to speak.
Words lying unheard,
In the tunnels of her ears;
Empty; void,
Airing waves of interference.
I see the future;
I hear the call,
As though, it were today.
So thick,
I can smell the fragrance in the air.
The musty smell of death,
Bringing forth,
The venom from within.
I see the future;
Casting out all tomorrows,
Knowing death comes without welcome,
I see the shade pulling downward.
Slowly, to go unnoticed,
Catching her by surprise,
When she, no longer blinded, turns to see,
She is captured like a fly,
Within a web of the inevitable.
As she tries relentlessly to break free,
But, it’s too late.
I hear the call of the future,
As though it were today,
Bringing upon me a toll.
Whilst cursing her future,
I chose not to cry,
Knowing in the end,
