I Wait - Poem by hannah hatfield

I wait, the cold air being hit by smoke
you lie there effortlessly, you wait too
wait to be forgotten like the other ghosts I knew
unwillingly I fight time
keeping you near
until the coldness consumes me and I choke.

Words you longed to hear
and I thought so pointless
even as you cried with a last breath
hoping to be heard
the world was unconscious
looking only with ignorance
you felt worthless with the aid
of those you loved.
