~finality~ - Poem by Sinnaminsun Sinnaminsun

~Finality~

Arabesque sprawling,
needing, seeking your ever-dimming halo.
Around your neck death's impermissible noose
tightens,
As you wince your last embittered breath.

Did shadows appear...
Did they embrace you within cocooning,
cloaked emptyness?
or
Did a light shine...
Did a presense come forth with soothing,
calming peace?

Will I ever see you again
after death
After-life?

Within this green and blocked off space I look
I look for any sparseness of you left behind,
Just a clue or even a sign
that would give some reasurance
This finality won't be
So
final...

But only flowers of multiple dae-glow colors
rise to the occation seeking the splintering rays
of days end.
Is Helios their only savior?

Who was yours?
Did you believe in something...
Someone?

I ask...though I know your answer,
And a stillness more silent than death
speaks to me,
As I leave this place
cold
alone,
and almost
As dead
as You.
